How Can I Help?

  • Raise the profile of a case: share it online, or 
  • Campaign: Write to your local representative to request action on protecting fair trial rights
  • Donate to our work: Fair Trials does not charge for its services and relies on your support to help hundreds of people each year. You may also wish to consider organising your own fundraising events. We are always happy to hear what people are doing to raise funds, and help out however we can. 
  • Inform others: Tell colleagues, friends and family about how we work for a world where every person’s right to a fair trial is respected.

Volunteering

Like many other charities, Fair Trials draws on key support from volunteers to increase its impact. This takes many forms, from our LEAP network, to students who are able arrange internships through their institutions for academic credit. We also work closely with a number of city law firms whose staff work on different campaign areas with us. 

Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering for Fair Trials and contributing to our work, or visit the vacancies page.

Fundraising

Organising a sponsored event is a great way to help us raise money, whilst raising awareness of fair trial issues in your local community.

Fair Trials is grateful to those supporters who help us meet our fundraising challenge – it could be anything, from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, to holding a bake sale. The sort of event you host is only limited by your imagination – so make sure it is something you will enjoy!

If you'd like to know more, then drop us an email. Here is our advice for successful fundraising:

  • Set yourself a target: Come up with a figure you would like to reach and let potential sponsors know.
  • Spread the word: The more people who know about what you are doing, the more sponsors you will get. Let everyone know – after all, you are doing it for a good cause.
  • Be prepared: Have more information on the work of Fair Trials to give to people and also how they can get involved.
  • Gift aid: If you're in the UK, make sure that your UK donors sign a gift aid declaration. This allows us to claim an extra 25p on each £1 you raise.
  • Use Justgiving: The site allows people to easily and securely donate online, removing the inconvenience of collecting cash from individual sponsors. The site also automatically calculates and includes Giftaid for UK donors. Visit Fair Trials' section on Justgiving to create your own page.

We are always happy to hear what people are doing to raise funds.

Legacies

Leave a gift in your will

Since it was first established in 1992, Fair Trials has helped thousands of people imprisoned in countries across the world. We have prevented many high-profile miscarriages of justice and helped people return home to their families and loved ones.

One way to help us continue this important work for years to come is to consider leaving a gift in your will. Every legacy we receive can have a significant impact on our work, offering a lifeline to many more people.

If you are interested in leaving a lasting gift and would like to speak to someone from Fair Trials about it, please do not hesitate to be in touch.
