HMCTS has opened its fourth Courts and Tribunals Service Centre in Salford, as part of its £1bn reform programme. Centres provide support and case information for legal professionals and court users. National services director, Una Bennett, said staff “will handle… calls and emails about social security, child support, probate and divorce” and provide specialist support for magistrates’ courts. The Salford centre will include a Digital Hub, hosting software and support teams responsible for software being used across courts, tribunals and service centres and by the public.
