Securing JUSTICE at 60 Appeal

Help us secure JUSTICE at 60 by supporting our Appeal

We need to raise £2million by 2017 to provide vital funds to achieve the full impact of our vision for the justice system and fortify our position as we enter our 60th year. It is an ambitious target for a small charity, but given what is at stake, we must meet the challenge.

Our only resources come from donations, grants and membership subscriptions from people who understand the importance of our mission to strengthen the justice system and the rights of individuals within it.

“For nearly 60 years JUSTICE has been at the forefront of reimagining the justice system. We have much to thank it for and it deserves our support.”
Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales
