Communicourt, a HMCTS Managed and Approved Service Provider of intermediary services, is looking to speak to North East solicitors practicing in family and criminal law.
Data shows the North East has four times lower use of intermediaries in criminal and family law cases compared to the South, even though intermediary costs are met by central HMCTS funds.
Communicourt is looking for input from solicitors and barristers in the North East to understand why this is the case and to pinpoint any potential blockers to help them improve access to intermediaries for defendants and respondents with communication needs in the North East.
Your insights will help to shape Communicourt’s approach as they level up the North East to reach more people in need of support with communication throughout their case.
If you’re happy to share your insight via a 30 minute Teams call you can express your interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. As a thank you, Communicourt is offering a £20 Amazon voucher to every solicitor or barrister specialising in family or criminal law they speak to.
