Pathways to Justice – using the law

What happens when people with a learning disability need legal advice?

It’s not always easy to recognise when you have a problem that would benefit from legal advice – many people with a learning disability turn to family, paid carers and community groups to help sort out a problem. But how do you find the right legal service?

The Pathways to Justice project is helping people with a learning disability get the legal services they need.

We’ve produced a guide and a series of videos to help explain how you can get legal services or support someone else who has a legal problem.

Pathways to Justice

Pathways to Justice takes you through the steps of understanding how best to solve a legal problem and signposts you to sources of help.

The guide is supported by a series of short films in which people with a learning disability, family carers, advocates and legal advisers share their experiences.
