Justice cuts: The stories behind the numbers

Justice Cuts: The stories behind the numbers, was made with the help of Gingerbread, Mind, Shelter, and the Personal Support Unit and featured Members of Parliament Bambos Charalambous and Bob Neill. 

The film was first shown at the Bar Council's Justice Week event of the same name on 31 October at The Temple Church.

The Bar Council produced the film because, five years on from LASPO, the human cost of the cuts made to our system of justice have still not fully been understood, particularly by those in Government, and remarkably little is known about how people manage when they cannot properly access our system of justice.

Whilst there is no shortage of advocacy papers or raw statistics on the impact of the cuts, more of us - particularly those in Westminster and Whitehall - need to hear the stories behind those numbers.
