AWI guidance section added to Civil Handbook
Monday, Jul 02, 2018
Guidance has been added to the Civil Handbook to explain our approach to legal aid applications concerning adults with incapacity (AWI).
The information reflects our established practice and is not new policy.
It covers the most common queries we receive and is aimed at assisting you in the application and accounts process.
The guidance explains:
- The information we need to assess the case and why we require it.
- What we do with the information and how we assess the application.
- When you need to ask us for sanction.
- The information you need to give us in order to be paid.
We have also created a tool to help you work out how to obtain cover for the different stages of the process.
Please contact Wendy Dalgleish for more information about applying for legal aid in these cases or Judith Cemery for further details about AWI accounts.
