From new anti-protest legislation to threats to pull the UK out of the European Convention of Human Rights, this has been a year in which our human rights have come constantly under attack. Meanwhile cuts to legal aid have left many people unable to access legal advice and support.

That’s why we’re taking part in the 2023 Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise funds for Liberty’s amazing Advice and Information service, which offers human rights advice to anyone who needs it.

Donate during the next week and your gift will be matched by a group of our generous supporters – Reed Smith, Clifford Chance, Norton Rose Fulbright and the Reed Foundation.

That means for every £10 you give, we’ll receive £20 – at no extra cost to you.

Our small, dedicated team provides a lifeline to thousands of people in need of legal advice every year – and demand is growing.

They help people understand and use their rights, giving advice over the phone, by email and letter, and through our specialist online information hub.

Over the last year they’ve given advice on a huge range of issues, from discrimination and privacy rights to the right to protest – all thanks to the supporters and members who help fund this vital service.

Next year the team hopes to reach more than a million people with their online legal advice materials and direct responses to requests for advice.

To help them achieve this, we need to raise £35,000.

This is a really ambitious target – but with your help we think we can get there.

This is the best time to support this crucial service, because all donations made through the Big Give between 28 November and 5 December will be doubled at no extra cost to you.

Please chip in if you are able and help us give people the tools they need to understand their rights and stand up to power.

Thank you for your amazing support and helping us to make our Big Give Christmas Challenge a success.
