The Public Policy and Research organisation Rights of Women is conducting a series of surveys to try and find out more about the likely impact upon women of the proposed reforms to Legal Aid. As noted by the Legal Action Group Blog recently the impacts of the cuts will disproportionately hit already disadvantaged groups, including women.
There are three separate surveys, one for individual women, one for legal professionals and one for others working with women victims of domestic abuse. You can read the Rights of Women briefing paper on the reforms here and find a link to the surveys here (scroll down, left hand side). If you fit into one of these categories please fill in the survey – I have done mine and it took about ten mins. Particularly sought are responses from both male and female civil practitioners.
