Current priorities

  • Minimising the detrimental impact of public funding and services cuts that affect socially marginalised people and the voluntary groups that serve them

  • Mitigating the impact of legal aid reform through strategic legal challenges to the new legal aid scheme. The first part of this work the exceptional funding project; click here for more information.

  • Challenging gatekeeping practices and poor-decision making impacting on disadvantaged groups generally

 

I know of no duty of the court which is more important to observe, and no power of the court which is more important to enforce, than its power of keeping public bodies within their rights.
