Have you been affected by Legal Aid cuts?

AlexAlex Scope Team Posts: 1,325 Scope community team
In the last few years, legal aid support for disabled people has been massively reduced.

A journalist has been in touch with Scope who is writing a piece highlighting the terrible impact this has had. They are looking to talk to people who really needed legal aid but weren't able to receive it.

Have you had to fund their own legal case to contest a wrong decision with their assessment?

Or did you find it too hard to navigate the legal requirements independently so had to "give up" your fight?

If so, and if you'd be happy to share your story - please contact us [email protected]

Thanks
