CILEx Pro Bono Trust is a registered charity. Our registration number is 1147556 and our official address is Kempston Manor, Kempston, Bedford MK42 7AB.

Please note that we are unable to provide or arrange any pro bono help directly to members of CILEx or anybody else. We do not maintain insurance nor any register of volunteers for the provision of such general services. For more information see PRO BONO SERVICES.

As a trust, we are governed by our Trust Deed which can be viewed here. The Trustees meet at least quarterly and between them undertake all the work of the Trust at the moment; we have no staff. As there is a lot to do and all the Trustees are unpaid volunteers who have day jobs and commitments, we are always keen to hear from people who are willing to help out so do get in touch.

Besides writing to our above address, to contact any of the Trustees use the links on the Trustees page. Alternatively, if you are not sure who to contact, just email Please do not email us asking for pro bono help with a case as we are unable to provide such help (see above).
