Statistical Annual Report for 2004 FLAC Data Collection Programme
FLAC is a human rights organisation that campaigns for access to justice for all and advocates for the promotion and protection of human rights including the right of access to justice. One of FLAC's core principles is to ensure that disadvantaged people can effectively access legal services.
To achieve those aims, it is essential for FLAC to have an accurate picture of its service provision and of the legal need of its callers. With the view of having uniform records and statistics of the overall work of its centres1, FLAC introduced the Data Collection Programme2 in January 2004. The information collated from FLAC's network of centres has greatly assisted FLAC in its development and in its ongoing research and campaigning efforts to improve the provision of State civil legal aid in Ireland.
