You may be eligible for Legal Aid if you want help with an issue covered by Legal Aid.
We have legal aid contracts for Community Care, Housing, Immigration and Asylum.
What we can do is limited by legal aid scheme rules:-
- Clients have to be financially eligible (ie on Benefits or a very low income)
- There must be more than a 50% chance of a successful outcome in the case (the “Merits Test”)
- The positive outcome must justify the cost of the case (the “Sufficient Benefit Test”)
What we can do is also limited by the scope of the scheme in the particular area of law.
Although we can help people outside of Luton and Bedfordshire, we may direct you to a Law Centre that is closer to you for Legal Aid.
