Donate your unclaimed client account funds and give access to justice to those that need it most. Since 2011, law firms across the country have been working closely with us and donating dormant client account balances in accordance with the SRA accounts rules. To date, over £1,000,000 has been raised, helping us get closer to our goal of providing legal assistance to members of the public who live in poverty, but are not eligible for legal aid.
Make your donation risk free!
We can provide a written indemnity for all unclaimed client account fund donations. If your client resurfaces you can ask us for the funds back, making your donation risk free.
Funds of £500 or less
Donating dormant funds of sums under £500 is easy. You must make reasonable attempts to establish the identity of and contact the money’s owner.
Amounts over £500
Amounts over £500 can also be paid to the Access to Justice Foundation provided SRA permission is granted.

Injustice causes poverty, homelessness, illness, discrimination and a whole range of difficulties. With your support we can give access to justice to those that need it the most, people like Charlotte.
For the new year we have developed some new resources for those that are considering supporting access to justice with their dormant client funds. Our new brochure on unclaimed client accounts spells out the steps that you need to take before you can donate residual funds and highlights the areas where your support might go and the difference that it can make.
