In 2016–17 Law for Life’s award-winning website Advicenow provided information and support to over a million people. Advicenow’s curated information service brings together 1,600 pieces of public legal information from over 250 UK websites.
In our fifth year of operation, we have focused on the growing need for people facing the prospect of court proceedings alone, without a lawyer, to receive the help we can offer through quality assured information, videos to build skills and confidence and tools to enable engagement. Working closely with our partners at LawWorks, Royal Courts of Justice Advice Bureau, Personal Support Unit, Bar Pro Bono Unit and the Access to Justice Foundation we are reaching many more litigants in person under the national Litigant in Person Support Strategy.
In 2014–15 Law for Life reached 1,204,372 beneficiaries via our information service, and our education and training provision, a 90% increase from the year 2013–14. To find out how we have been doing in the past year download our report.
