Governmental “Crowding Out” in Philanthropy

Little risk of Governmental ‘Crowding Out’ at the moment but fascinating reading…Personally I would agree that for many charities who have become very dependent on statutory funding, the traditional fund raising efforts have been wound down.  The question now is, how fast can they be wound back up….

Beware the poor lawyer: the legal aid reform responses

5,000 responses to the legal aid consultation.  See this post for more feedback on the legal aid consultation.  There are some interesting excerpts from charities and legal bodies about the impact of the ‘reforms’.

Our response focused on the impact on victims of domestic abuse and the very limited definition of what constitutes domestic abuse.  Our concerns centre on the risk of dual and false allegations, being cross examined by litigants in person and no legal aid for interim care orders…..as well as the apparent lack of recognition for other vulnerable people who might need legal advice- those with mental health and substance misuse problems for example.  Let’s hope that 5,000 responses will make the MOJ see sense.
