The Personal Support Unit (PSU) will be the subject of the weekly Radio 4 Appeal on Sunday 18th January 2009 at 7.55am, when Lord Woolf will speak in support of the appeal.




This appeal was broadcast the same weekend that the BBC refused to broadcast an appeal for Food, water and urgent medical supplies fro the people of Gaza, the BBC refused as they did not want to be seen as imartial, yet they were not shourt of thses supplies across the border! Davey

The Personal Support Unit is an independent charity, based in the main building at the Royal Courts of Justice in Strand, London.

The Courts can be a daunting and intimidating place for those involved in legal proceedings. For those who do not have legal representation the difficulties are made worse. The PSU provides non-legal advice, help, information and support to litigants in person and to any member of the public attending at the Royal Courts of Justice who may need help or assistance.

The Right Honourable the Attorney General, Baroness Scotland QC says: "I have seen the Personal Support Unit at work and am very impressed by its professionalism and the way in which it meets a significant need. The volunteers at the Unit provide valuable support to litigants who are unrepresented and often unfamiliar with the court processes.


The support offered is very diverse and might range from accompanying the litigants into court, to speaking to court staff and judges' clerks on their behalf and even to providing quiet and safe areas for them to sit in before and after court appearances. I know that the Unit works hard within a very limited budget and both needs and deserves financial support."

The Right Honourable the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge also has praise for the PSU:

"The volunteers from the PSU, (Personal Support Unit), provide emotional and practical support to unrepresented litigants. Based in the Royal Courts, but also with offices in the Principal Registry of the Family Division, Wandsworth County Court and now firmly established in Manchester's Civil Justice Centre, this remarkable charity will grow and develop.

For people on their own in the civil and family courts, often vulnerable and with special needs, the presence of a calm and friendly volunteer ensures that their case is better presented so all those who participate are more effective. I know that the organisation runs on a shoestring and needs support.

ILEX members can give that support to the PSU through donations. They can donate on line at www.thepsu.co.uk/donate or write to: Radio 4 Appeal, PSU, Room M104, Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL

Lest we forget!

Lest we forget!
In the year we saw the last of the World War One ‘Tommy’s’ complete his journey on this earth and many World War Two warriors now considering how many more memorials they will attend especially in foreign lands, we appreciate what their lives and those who did not return stand for in giving us freedom of speech and a quality of life many of us take for granted and my thoughts of my late father a peace loving man facing the horror of war from the rear gunning turret of a Lancaster Bomber.
