Keeping the Criminal justice system working through the pandemic

The government has announced a £113 million funding boost for our justice system, helping to reduce delays and ensuring speedier justice for victims, defendants and the public. 

  • This pandemic has put unprecedented pressures on the UK justice system – but the government is determined to minimise delays and ensure justice can be served for everyone.
  • That is why a £113 million funding package is being implemented for our legal system, which includes building 14 new ‘Nightingale Courts’ – bringing the total number up to 60 – as well as recruiting additional staff, and putting in place new technology and safety measures to ensure these new courtrooms can run effectively.
  • This investment will help to further drive our recovery from the pandemic, delivering swifter justice and better support for victims and we build back better and safer.
