THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I enabled a wife to spend more time with her husband in hospital

Post 81

“I represented a young woman whose husband was in a minimally conscious state following a road traffic accident. She travelled 3 hours a day to visit him as he was placed so far from home. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I persuaded his CCG to commission a new placement 20 minutes from home.”

THANKS TO LEGAL AID, an 89 year old woman challenged her deprivation of liberty in a care home

Post 76

“Today I met an 89 year old woman with dementia who was moved into a care home against her will. She was desperate to go home, which could work with the right support. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to win her a trial period home with a package of care.”

Who will still fail the residence test? Victims of torture from abroad where the UK Government is complicit.

Post 70

“Today I met a man who believed the UK Government was complicit in his torture. During interrogations abroad, his torturers asked questions that indicated the UK worked with them. He believed UK agents were present at times. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I sought disclosure, questioned UK authorities & investigated his allegations.

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

EXCEPTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH.”
