Legal Aid

The Government is reviewing access to legal aid. 

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.

The time for change is now. The Government is conducting a review and is considering changes to the legal aid system. With More United’s help, 21 MPs from 4 parties have put their party differences to one side and, led by Alistair Carmichael MP and Andy Slaughter MP, successfully called for a debate on legal aid in Parliament during “Justice Week”.
