“Today I represented a child who suffered harm in their parents’ care. Social Services had already moved my client’s sibling to safety, but neglected to move my client. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I showed that my client’s harm was preventable, had Social Services heeded their duty.”
“Today I met a 17 year old boy eager to pursue further education. He had been told that upon turning 18 social services would stop supporting him with his studies. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to go to Court and argue that his support should continue”
“I acted for a 21 year old client hoping to study for a university degree. The Student Loans Company denied her a loan due to an administrative problem with her residency status. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I challenged the SLC decision & she’s off to university to study with her peers.”
I represented a young person concerned about the closure of their local library.
The closure meant they would have nowhere to study in the evenings.
THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to challenge the Local Authority’s decision to close the library.
