Announcing grants awarded under the Improving Outcomes Through Legal Support programme

Grants Awarded

Following a successful funding round, we are pleased to announce that grants have now been awarded as part of the Improving Outcomes Through Legal Support (IOTLS) grant. A total of 59 organisations based across England and Wales will receive a total of £10m in funding to support their work to sustain and improve access to early social welfare and family legal advice, specialist casework and where court or tribunal proceedings are needed, provide the support needed to help people navigate the process effectively.

The grant programme will launch on 1st July 2023 and run until 31st March 2025. We will be working together with this cohort to support the effective delivery of advice services and collate a robust learning and evidence base to make the case for future funding.
