In 2012 the Government passed a law to radically reduce the availability of free legal advice via legal aid from April 2013, despite a huge campaign against making these cuts.

As a result, from 1st April 2013 the Mary Ward Legal Centre has to radically reduce its legal advice services.  The Legal Centre has lost legal aid  funding that helped over 1600 people a year.

Please click on the area of law you are seeking advice on to view the new access details.

If you have concerns about the cuts to legal aid we suggest you write to your MP. We have devised a template letter that you may wish to use to write to your MP.  You can download the letter here Letter to MP
