THANKS TO LEGAL AID, a soup kitchen was saved from closure

Post95

“I represented two homeless people who regularly used a soup kitchen. The local council threatened to close the soup kitchen, which fed over 50 people every day. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to challenge this decision in court and the soup kitchen was saved.”

THANKS TO LEGAL AID, a vulnerable homeless man was re-housed

“I represented a man with physical and mental health problems. He was sleeping rough for two years as the council refused to house him. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I challenged the decision and secured temporary accommodation for him.”

Who will still fail the residence test? Victims of trafficking to the UK who will be made homeless without legal advice.

“Today I met a woman who was trafficked to the UK as a domestic servant. She was made homeless & worked as a prostitute to survive. She was granted refugee status & placed in housing, but the local authority wanted to withdraw it. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I could provide advice to prevent her from becoming homeless again.

THIS CASE WOULD BE BARRED BY THE “RESIDENCE TEST”.

EXCEPTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH.”

THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I prevented a victim of domestic violence with mental health problems from sleeping in the street.

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.”
