Suffolk Law Centre

Ipswich law firm Prettys has donated £1,000 to Suffolk Law Centre to support the charity’s ongoing work in the community.

Suffolk Law Centre provides a vital service for the diverse community in Suffolk to ensure they are aware of their legal rights and have the right support to access legal services that may be available to them.

Prettys has been a long-term supporter of Suffolk Law Centre (formerly Suffolk Law Advice Centre, part of Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equality), with solicitors and trainee solicitors from across the firm regularly providing pro bono advice at the legal advice drop in sessions held at Suffolk Law Centre’s Ipswich office.

Peter Blake, a partner at Prettys said: “We are delighted to support Suffolk Law Centre and the important work they do. We believe that everyone has a right to access legal services and the team at Suffolk Law Centre provide a valuable service to make sure people within the local community can get the help they need.”

Audrey Ludwig, legal director Suffolk Law Centre said: “We have had great support from Prettys’ staff with our free legal services for many years, so this excellent donation reinforces their shared commitment to access justice for all in Suffolk.”

Following the donation, Prettys is now a founding member of Suffolk Law Centre.

Suffolk Law Centre officially opened its doors on St Matthew’s Street in March 2018.

During the initial stages the team will be working towards their vision to empower people in Suffolk to understand and assert their legal rights. The centre is looking to develop ways to make its legal advice services more accessible to more people.
