New rules that came into force on 31st May will remove legal help to road accident victims - but the Prison Officers’ Association (POA) has announced it will be stepping in to continue to support any member with a claim to make sure they continue to get specialist legal help.

New rules came into force on 31st May with the supposed aim of tackling a ‘whiplash’ culture, making it much more difficult for many road traffic accident (RTA) victims to get free legal support, but POA members and their families will continue to be able to access legal help.

Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all POA members.

Representing over 30,000 Prison, Correctional and Secure Psychiatric Workers, the POA is the largest UK Union in this sector, able to trace its roots back more than 100 years.
