Resolution response to Court of Appeal ruling on legal aid for domestic violence victims
Welcoming today's Court of Appeal ruling that government changes to legal aid for domestic violence victims are unlawful, Jo Edwards, National Chair, Resolution said:
"Women suffering from domestic abuse need access to justice. This is why Resolution members welcome the judgment made today by the Court of Appeal as it will help to ensure those suffering, or at risk of suffering, domestic abuse are able to access advice and representation.
"Resolution and our members have been proud to help Rights of Women provide evidence that illustrates that the current rules are flawed. We look forward to working with the Government and our partners to make the changes necessary to ensure more victims of domestic abuse have access to family legal aid."
