We believe that anyone who needs legal advice should be able to access it – no matter what their background or income might be. Our ground-breaking technology will help food banks and community groups and provide access to the law for poor and vulnerable people.
“It is a fundamental pillar of our democracy that everyone should be able to exercise their legal rights regardless of their background or financial position. However, cuts to legal aid have seen many people on low incomes simply unable to access good quality legal advice because it is unaffordable. That’s why the work of the Jeanie Project is so important, because without work they and others will do, wrongs won’t be righted and achieving justice will continue to be out of reach for many people” – Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
