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, young people and vulnerable adults
  • fresh asylum and human rights claims
  • immigration applications for families supported by a local authority, and
  • applications for 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.

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