Charging for services in your Law Centre

There are many ways to diversify income in Law Centres and charging for services is just one of them. It doesn’t have to be just about charging clients directly for advice, but might also include:

  • Local authorities paying for casework for individuals under their care
  • Housing associations paying for casework for tenants
  • Doing work under CFA, DBA or pro bono costs orders
  • Charging for training or consultancy or external supervision
  • Generating income through other means like a community café


If any of these might be of interest to your Law Centre or if you are doing them already but want to refresh your strategy, then this session will be a great opportunity to:

  • Explore some of the practical considerations you need to consider before charging
  • Look at tools to help you understand the costs of the service you want to deliver
  • Think about how marketing or partnering with other organisations might help
  • Hear about possible grant funding that you may be able to access to enable you to develop paid for services in your Law Centre


Trainers: Shira Lappin, Social Finance and Jayne Edwards, LCN


This training is open to all Law Centres. Lunch will be provided.
