Make a donation

Advocate is an independent charity that relies on donations to meet all its running costs. We are very grateful to all those sets of chambers, organisations and individuals who already donate to us. Please see a list of our supporters here.

Donations made on a regular committed basis (for example by standing order) are particularly appreciated, as they allow us to plan properly for the future. When a Gift Aid declaration is completed, at no additional cost to yourself, we receive an extra 25p for every pound that you give. So a donation of £100 is worth £125!

A regular or one off donation, big or small, is gratefully received and will enable us to continue to help everyday people get free legal assistance. If you would like to set up a regular or make a one-off donation online you can do so here:

Make a donation using Virgin Money Giving

NB: If you choose to donate through VirginMoneyGiving, there is a 4.5% fee (2% platform fee and 2.5% payment processing fee). You can cover those fees yourself, meaning that we receive your full donation, (i.e. if you donate £50 and pay £2.25 in fees, then we receive £50). If you do not want to cover the fees, we will receive your donation amount minus the fees, (i.e. if you donate £50, we will receive £47.75). This is the same for regular and one-off donations.

Alternatively, you can email Sarah to request a standing order form.

Please note: if you are a current Advocate applicant, there is no need to make a donation – our services are provided free of charge.
