How to Apply
Usually, applications are made by the lawyer handling the case but they can also be made by the journalist, the family or friends of the journalist or a relevant support organisation. If you have not yet found a lawyer, please contact us first and we may be able to put you in touch with lawyers we have worked with previously.
In order to apply for support, please:
- complete the application form
- provide copies of the main legal documents relating to the case (if any)
- provide a budget breakdown (we will only cover costs directly related to the case)
- provide a link to or copy of the relevant article/s or post/s associated with the case
If you have any technical issues accessing the online form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the issue so we can resolve the problem.
