Charity operations during coronavirus outbreak
The primary aim for SBA The Solicitors’ Charity is to provide a service to solicitors in need or crisis. This applies equally to those we have helped for some time and to those who are just now seeking help.
Our systems are set up in such a way that we can work either in the office or remotely. For the foreseeable future, SBA The Solicitors’ Charity staff will be providing our service whilst ‘working from home’. This is a temporary measure to help ensure that we continue to provide support to all who need it. There is a possibility that our response times may be a little slower than usual and we hope that you will bear with us should this be the case.
For general enquiries, we can be contacted via the email address below
Information for applicants and existing beneficiaries
If you are receiving our support or wish to apply, be assured that we will still be able to help/advise accordingly. We can be contacted via email and our working hours remain from 9.00am to 5.00pm on weekdays.
If you are already in receipt of agreed financial assistance, payments will be made in the usual way.
Information for supporters who make donations or transfer unclaimed client balances
As always, your support will make a huge difference to our cause. We will continue to accept donations and residual client balances. Details of how to donate or transfer balances by post is here.
If you would like to transfer these balances by BACS, please email Martyn Hayes for further information – firstname.lastname@example.org. Indemnity letters for unclaimed client balances will be sent electronically (rather than post).
When do we expect to be back at our office desks?
We honestly don’t yet know. But we will keep a close eye on advice and guidance and will make a decision in due course. Information of when we will be returning to the office will be published on the website and Twitter. In the meantime, we will be working hard to ensure that you continue to receive the same level of support that we always try to offer.
