As of February 2019, HM Courts and Tribunals Service has spent £514m on the Reform Programme.

Broken down by year this equals:

2014/15 - £15m

2015/16 - £57m

2016/17 - £114m

2017/18 - £162m

2018/Feb 19 - £165m

The ambitious Reform programme, developed in partnership with the Judiciary is bringing new technology and modern ways of working to the justice system. New digital services are already making a difference, with 150,000 people using online justice systems in 2018. Public feedback is positive with 85% of people reporting they are happy with the new divorce service, 93% for probate and 89% for civil money claims.
