Bristol Pro Bono mapping exercise

Clare Carter, Director of Avon & Bristol Law Centre is working with other agencies in the City setting up a pro bono network. The first thing the network is looking to do is to map current pro bono provision in Bristol so we can raise awareness of this, and identify gaps/ duplication etc.

In order to carry out this mapping exercise, Clare would be interested in hearing from Bristol firms and their experience of the following:

2.) Who would you contact if you were interested in doing pro bono work?
3.) Would a central pro bono co ordination resource be useful?

Please send your responses directly to Clare at
