Ensuring justice for families and children

The Response of the Association of Lawyers for Children to the Legal Services Commission Consultation on Family Legal Aid Funding From 2010

Within this first part, the ALC sets out its own approach to the main issues raised by the consultation paper, makes comment about the approach of the LSC, and introduces in outline its own advocacy scheme – one that has been informed by its own in-depth understanding of practice and that is intended to make good the significant deficiencies identified in the proposals of the LSC.

Within the second part of our Response, the ALC answers the specific questions raised by the consultation paper insofar as it is within the remit of the ALC to answer them.
