Press release

Responding to the news that the Government is to drastically cut legal aid

Tuesday 16 November 2010

“These cuts to legal aid provision could leave over 500,000 people with no funding for legal costs. Saga believe that access to legal services is very important, particularly for those these cuts will affect the most – those going through divorce, or with housing or employment issues. Anticipating these changes Saga recently launched a Legal Service that gives people access to a range of legal documents that can be completed online and checked by qualified solicitors giving piece of mind."
