New report from the SMF think tank:

Recommendations include:

- Reverse cuts to civil legal aid, which some estimates suggest would save the government money by limiting expensive downstream problems.
- Prioritise early, joined-up interventions, providing resources and incentives for legal and other services to collaborate. An example would be co-locating legal advice clinics with hospitals or GP surgeries.
- Collect better and more timely data, for example through a biannual Civil Justice Survey for England and Wales.
