Our legal fund provides our members with a vital lifeline to regularise their stay in the UK or be reunited with loved ones.
We see that many of our members may have the right to regularise their stay in the UK or be reunited with loved ones but cannot afford the associated immigration fees and legal costs. Legal aid has continued to be cut which has left many of our members unable to access justice for their cases.
Our legal fund can contribute to paying for immigration and legal costs when legal aid isn't available for a member. This has enabled countless people to be reunited with their loved ones by Family Reunion, prevented deportations, released people from indefinite detention, and helped to regularise people's immigration status in the UK.
People can be referred to our fund from our partners at Bristol Refugee Rights and British Red Cross. Please note, we only pay funds directly to regulated legal representatives.
