We will be walking 10km on Tuesday 13th June to help fund Medical Justice.
We are walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers who are raising funds in aid of free legal advice and support for everything from Law Centres and Citizens Advice services to refugee specialist support services. We are walking to raise funds for Medical Justice.
Medical Justice is the only charity in the UK to send independent volunteer clinicians to visit people held in Immigration Removal Centres across the UK and document their scars of torture and serious medical conditions.
Evidence from our casework is the platform for our research into systemic failures in healthcare provision, the harm caused by these shortcomings, as well as the toxic effect of immigration detention itself on the health of people in detention. We use our research, policy work, strategic litigation and parliamentary work to secure lasting change.
Your support is needed more than ever. Please sponsor our walkers as generously as you are able.
£50 could cover the train fare for a volunteer clinician to visit a person in detention to carry out a medical assessment.
Thank you for supporting our team in fundraising for the London Legal Walk.
