Regional and local support for those representing themselves in court underway in England and Wales

The Ministry of Justice’s £3.1 million Legal Support for Litigants in Person grant has set up 8 area-based partnerships.

  • The Legal Support for Litigants in Person (LSLIP) grant is fully underway, funding 11 projects across more than 50 organisations at local, regional and national levels to help people to identify issues as early as possible, to prevent them from getting worse, and to support people where they do need to attend court.

    Eight new regional and local partnerships are working together to share knowledge, network, and build expertise, all of which are crucial to identifying emerging needs and meeting them in the most effective way. This has also allowed funded organisations greater flexibility in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This approach helps to build up data on people representing themselves in the courts and inform future policy.
