Since 2013 cuts to civil legal aid across the UK have led to reduced, and inadequate ‎legal support. It is estimated over 43,000 poor people in the UK will be unable to get ‎critical legal specialist support with the charity sector having a 18% hole in their ‎finances in 2023-24. In 2023 critical national services are losing Ministry funding ‎despite positive evaluation. Austerity in the UK diminishes opportunities to address ‎causes of ‎inequality and systemic drivers. Legal expertise required to challenge ‎‎systemic causes of inequality is missed further entrenching disadvantage. My ‎research is already improving Access to Justice evidencing how outcomes are ‎improved in social determinants of health by uptake of justice options (housing, safety, ‎income etc.). Based on this evidence base reducing funding to such a critical service ‎as the Nottingham Law Centre based on my expertise in research and practice will do ‎significant harm to the local community.‎
