About Us

since 2015

Over £1bn of legal aid cuts have caused many people to partake unrepresented in court proceedings, or simply not fight for justice at all. The number of people receiving legal aid has fallen more than 80% in eight years.

This has prevented hundreds of thousands of people from pursuing justice in areas such as housing, debt, employment, clinical negligence, immigration, welfare payments and education and much more. To add to this the family courts are claimed to be over-run with unrepresented litigants, discouraging many people from continuing proceedings. The number of people accessing legal aid in family matters has fallen 88% in the last seven years. Within family courts legal aid is only granted to people who have alleged to be victims of domestic abuse. Since legal aid was cut in 2012 there has been a 30% increase in domestic abuse allegations in relation to cases coming before the courts. Non-molestation orders go hand in hand with domestic abuse allegations and subsequently in recent years there has been a 900% increase in non-molestation orders used in court proceedings
