Supporting mental health and wellbeing in the legal community

How are you, really? Life in the law can be challenging and sometimes things can get on top of you. Can we help?

LawCare is an independent charity offering emotional support, information, and training to the legal community in the UK and Ireland. We work to promote good mental health and wellbeing in legal workplaces and drive change in education, training, and practice.  We’ve been supporting legal professionals for 20 years and no one knows lawyers like we do.

Our support service offers a safe place to talk without judgment. We’re here to help, with helpline calls, emails and webchats answered in confidence by trained staff and volunteers who have first-hand experience of working in the law. We also have a network of peer supporters.

Whether you’re a barrister feeling burnt out, a young trainee experiencing sexual harassment, a student struggling with the workload, support staff worrying about a mistake you’ve made, a senior lawyer feeling like you’re being pushed out  – we’re here to listen.

We are here to help all branches of the legal profession and our support spans the legal life from student to training to practice and retirement.

LawCare offers emotional support, information and training to the legal community in the UK and Ireland.
