  • Legal Aid in Scotland review for people with disabilities

    Created: 14/06/2017

    When: 12.30 - 2.30pm, Wednesday 21 June 2017
    Where: McAdam Room, Norton Park Conference Centre, Albion Road, Edinburgh

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Legal Aid in Scotland is being reviewed and the Review Group is keen to hear directly from disabled people about their experiences of Scottish Legal Aid, including if issues with Legal Aid contributed to any decision not to apply for it. 

    Independent Living in Scotland (ILIS) project is hosting a small informal discussion to support disabled people to contribute directly to the Review. 

    This event is taking place at the invitation of Martyn Evans, the Independent Chair of the Review, who is keen to hear from equalities groups and to make contributing to the Review as accessible as possible for all.  He will be at the event along with some members of the Review Group.  The format is an informal 2-hour discussion. 

    Please contact them on the details provided with information on any requirements for access and inclusion, including support for communication, travel and for Personal Assistance. Please also advise of any dietary requirements.  ILiS will endeavour to meet all requests.

    This is a small event for up to 12 people, so places will be allocated as responses are received.
