There still remains legal aid for parents of children or children for whom there is a pre proceedings/PLO meeting or a Local Authority Care application. This legal aid is not dependent on your financial circumstances.
There may also be legal aid available for other family members and for other work, supporting you through difficulties with Social Services. This would need to be what is known as 'means and merits tested'. To qualify for this we have to explain why there is a good reason for you to be represented and that you are not in a position to fund this service yourself.
