In December 2015, the Ministry of Justice published a Survey of Not for Profit Legal Advice Providers in England and Wales.
The research had three main aims:
- To develop a baseline of the profile of Not for Profit (NfP) advice providers in England and
Wales; including details of their size, structure, funding arrangements,
partnership arrangements, operations and advice delivery.
- To describe NfP advice clients in terms of numbers, types of client/problem and
- To provide an indication of how NfP advice providers may have been affected by
recent legal aid and other reforms, how they have adapted, perceptions of
changes made since April 2013 and perceptions of the changes that will be
needed in future to maintain the stability of provision going forward.
