THREAT

“Today I met a woman with mental health problems. She fled her home after a violent assault by her partner. She had nowhere to stay but the local authority refused her accommodation. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I compelled them to provide housing so that she wouldn’t sleep on the street.”

THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I made sure the CPS prosecuted a man who admitted to raping his girlfriend.

“Today I met a vulnerable woman who had been raped by her boyfriend. He had admitted to rape in texts, but the Crown Prosecution Service refused to prosecute him. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, we had the decision overturned so that he would face justice.”
