Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants

14th March 2019

This fund is available for strategic legal work in any area of law where vulnerable young migrants experience disadvantage or discrimination as a result of migration status.

They define this group as migrants or the children of migrants who are under 25, living in poverty, and face significant disadvantage or discrimination in connection with their (or their parents’) migration status.

The maximum grant available is £30,000, though groups are encouraged to apply for lesser amounts – the average grant size is around £12,000.

The following UK based organisations re eligible to apply:

  • Not-for-profit (NFP) organisations that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants. (you must confirm that staff leading on the proposed work are accredited at Level 3, Advocacy and Representation, in the relevant category of law.)
  • Firms of solicitors that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants. Solicitors’ firms need to demonstrate that the funded work does not include any element of profit and, as for all applicants, that there is a pro bono element included.

Interested?

Deadline is 3rd May 2019.
