ACCESS TO ADVICE AND SUPPORTING ORGANISATIONS INVITE YOU TO A PUBLIC MEETING
The Future for Public Funded Legal Advice
Monday 1st October

How do we save and maintain publicly funded legal advice?
Publicly funded legal advice and representation are essential for millions of UK residents:
- supporting their legal rights in employment, housing, benefits, debt, immigration
- ensuring that they are treated fairly under the law.
Yet access to advice services is under serious threat due to:
- Massive increases in demand as housing and debt problems rise and major benefit changes are introduced.
- Massive cuts in funding as Legal Aid, council budgets and other funding streams are slashed.
Come along to the meeting. Tell others about it and use the embedded leaflet below.
