Legal Needs Dashboard – Community Profiles (2023)

A tool to explore data in relation to those in the community who are most vulnerable to the experience, or the impact, of legal problems. Use this resource to compile a profile for a geographic area, and analyse the relative distribution of specific community groups to inform an assessment of potential legal needs.


This dashboard replaces the Foundation's National Legal Needs dashboard with more recent data, a streamlined interface, and improved overall performance.
