The Help Accessing Legal Support Grant programme was launched in July 2022 and is supporting 55 organisations across England and Wales to meet the following objectives:

  • Improve and sustain access to early legal advice and support to avoid unnecessary court proceedings and to prepare litigants in person for proceedings where these are necessary.
  • Sustain partnerships and networks to improve access to the most appropriate advice at the right time so the majority of clients’ cases are resolved.
  • Deliver services based on user needs, improving the efficiency of digital and remote delivery and safeguarding in-person services for the most vulnerable.
  • Contribute to building a stronger evidence base in order to inform service delivery and increase understanding of the value of early legal advice.

Please note that this grants round is now closed.
