HiiL works in partnership with public officials, justice sector professionals, entrepreneurs, and investors to realise people-centred justice and help reach SDG16.3 – equal access to justice for all. Through our work, we help justice practitioners to build solutions which allow people to resolve or prevent their justice problems. This means more people can get on with their lives faster, enhancing their wellbeing and economies.
