“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.
“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.”
“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.”
