Apply for Children’s Duty Scheme 2016-2017 – deadline 27 May 2016
Thursday, Apr 07, 2016
The current Children’s Legal Assistance Duty Plan expires on 26 June 2016.
Firms wishing to take part in the next Children’s Duty Plan, which will run between Monday 27 June 2016 and Sunday 25 June 2017, are invited to apply for this 12 month plan.
If your firm wishes to take part in the 2016-17 Children's Duty Scheme you will need to submit a duty application form by Friday 27 May 2016.
Please note that firms need to do this even if they are included in the 2015/16 Plan as there is no automatic transfer to the new Plan for 2016/17.
The application form must be completed by the Compliance Manager for each firm wishing to apply for inclusion on the Children’s Duty Plan. One form must be completed per branch.
All solicitors named in the application form require to be PVG registered and to have SLAB recorded on their PVG record as a Registered Body. These forms are available on our website.
Guidance on PVG registration can be found in our update issued 11 Dec 2014.
