We aim to provide high quality specialist immigration advice to enable migrants and refugees to live safety in the UK

We prioritise cases for vulnerable people such as children, young people, people at risk of gender violence, people with mental health problem, and individuals and families facing destitution and homelessness for reasons relating to immigration status. Many of the cases we take on involve breaches of human rights and we aim to use the law strategically.

Homeless Patients Legal Advocacy Service.

We work in partnership with the homeless teams at Guys,

St Thomas and Kings College hospitals to provide casework and representation for homeless patients, and training and second tier consultancy for the Homeless teams. This project won the second prize in the London Homeless Awards 2021

Advice on EU Settlement

We have received funding from the Home Office and from Southwark council to provide assistance with more complex applications for settlement from vulnerable EEA nationals. We work in partnership with New Europeans and Citizens Advice Southwark.

Examples of cases we may take on

  • Cases for particularly vulnerable people who would be unable to deal with cases themselves or be able to access the specialist advice services they require elsewhere
  • Cases that have the potential to protect or advance access to justice and the rule of law
  • Cases that have the potential to benefit many people
  • Cases that are especially factually and/or legally complex
  • Referrals from the Immigration Partnership, and especially higher courts work that the referral agency is not able to conduct for regulatory reasons (i.e. judicial review and higher appeals)
  • Appeals to the upper tribunal and higher courts
  • Cases involving a discrimination claim
  • Cases where there is a cross over with welfare rights and housing rights
  • EU Settlement applications
