LawCare is the mental wellbeing charity for the legal profession. We offer free, confidential, emotional support, peer support, and resources to those working in the law in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man. We promote mental health and wellbeing best practice in legal workplaces and drive culture change in education, training and practice. We’ve been supporting legal professionals for over 25 years and we understand life in the law.
Our support service offers a safe place to talk without judgement. We’re here to listen, with helpline calls, emails and online chats answered in confidence by trained staff and volunteers who have first-hand experience of working in the law.
We are here to help all branches of the legal profession and our support spans the legal life from student to retirement.
Whether you’re a barrister feeling burnt out, a young trainee experiencing sexual harassment, an HR professional 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 help.
LawCare won’t ask for your roll number or details of your workplace, you don’t have to give your name, and they are independent of professional bodies and regulators.
Did you know that all those at LawCare answering calls, emails and online chats have experience of working in the legal profession and are keen to support anyone going through a tough time. They’d rather people contacted LawCare early, when they just need to let off steam or talk through a situation; they want everyone to know that they don’t have to wait until things have escalated, LawCare are here anytime they need to talk.
