PAS Self Help Toolkits
In 2013, the cuts to Legal Aid significantly reduced the number of solicitors practising Prison Law. In response to this – and with the vital support of The Legal Education Foundation – PAS created a range of Self Help Toolkits for prisoners to help them undertake some legal processes by themselves. Easy-read versions of the kits are also available, aimed at those with low literacy levels, English as a second language or learning disabilities (see below).
Also below are four Family Law Guides, created in association with Rights of Women. Publication of these guides was made possible with funding from BM Sir Halley Stewart Trust and The Wates Foundation. Design (and printing of hard copies) made possible with the kind assistance of Mayer Brown.
- The list of areas addressed by the Toolkits is as follows:
