We want to understand the experiences of disabled defendants or accused in the criminal justice system. People who are charged with a criminal offence are called ‘defendants’ in England and Wales, and ‘accused’ in Scotland.

We will look at whether the needs of these defendants or accused are properly identified and whether adjustments are put in place to meet their needs, so they are able to take part fully in court processes. Our work will cover England, Scotland and Wales.
