Greenwich Law Centre hopes for judicial review over council cut

A bit late with this, and there’s not very much else to say at the moment, but Greenwich Community Law Centre has applied for a judicial review of the council’s decision to withdraw its funding from this month.

They lost their funding after Greenwich decided to change the way it funded legal services, asking local centres to compete to cover specific areas of expertise instead of acting together as a consortium. Critics say the decision will leave the west of the borough without legal advice services.

The team there are expecting to hear if they’ve been successful later this week – if they are, you’ll no doubt hear a lot more about this in the weeks and months to come.
