Cuts to legal aid have left some people without access to justice when they need it most.
Eleanor was caught up in the Windrush scandal and was unable to access legal aid. A problem that could have been sorted in weeks took two years of struggle.
Watch her story in this two-minute video:
We want to reverse the worst cuts so people can access the legal advice they need. Specifically, we want to:
- Restore access to early advice
- Restore access to welfare advice, and
- Simplify the criteria for those who need legal aid.
Everyone deserves access to justice – not just those who can afford it.
Join the campaign.
