Advocacy Volunteer: Legal Advocacy Support Project (LASP)

Closing date: Tuesday, 12th October 2021

Volunteer law students work with the Welfare Benefits team to run appeals to the First-tier Tribunal against decisions on disability and sickness benefits. This allows many people who have no statutory right to representation to exercise their right to challenge decisions made about them.

Required: Volunteers are required to attend a 4-hour session once per week for at least 40 out of the first 52 weeks that they first start on the project and be available for 12 of the 18 weeks between October 2021 and October 2022.

Candidates are expected to attend two to three training sessions the week commencing the 25th October 2021.
