PAS Self Help Toolkits

With the vital support of The Legal Education Foundation, PAS created a range of Self Help Toolkits for prisoners to help them understand and 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).

There are two kits aimed at LGBT+ prisoners.  These were kindly supported by The Tudor Trust and The Paul Cottingham Trust.

Finally, 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:
