What help can we offer you?

We prioritise our resources to helping children who do not have immigration status, adult and unaccompanied child asylum seekers, victims of trafficking and modern slavery and victims of domestic violence.

We undertake work at all stages of the immigration and asylum process, including representing individuals and families in appeals and applications for judicial review.

This may include:

  • Asylum claims of unaccompanied children and young people
  • Fresh asylum and human rights claims
  • Immigration claims of children in families supported by a local authority
  • Leave to remain in the UK if you have been a victim of domestic violence

We will provide you with initial advice. You may then be able to resolve your problem yourself or you may need ongoing advice and representation from one of our advisors.

We also deliver bespoke legal advice projects to meet the needs of migrant communities:

Citizenship for young people (Kids in Need of Defence UK):

Pro bono legal advice to help children and young people make applications for citizenship.

Migrant rights:

Legal advice and knowledge building to newly arrived families from Syria who have been settled in Coventry under the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme. Information on legal rights to migrants and refugees being supported by the region wide Mi Friendly Cities project.
