Important Notice: Temporary Service Pause

Due to high demand, our service is currently at capacity. As a result, we are temporarily closed to new inquiries. We understand the urgency of your situation and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please check back in 3 weeks’ time for updates on our service availability.

We are dedicated to supporting people who have left their home in search of a better, safer life. Our team of experts provide advice and assistance to help you navigate the complex world of asylum and immigration issues.

Most of our work is free of charge, funded by legal aid, and provided through referrals from partner agencies. Where legal aid is not available, we may offer not-for-profit rates or free initial advice from volunteer lawyers who are committed to helping our local community.

We can help with
  • EU settled status applications for complex issues or vulnerable people
  • Asylum applications and appeals (including for people in prison)
  • Human rights applications on private and family grounds
  • Unaccompanied children
  • Victims of trafficking
  • Victims of domestic violence
  • Deportation proceedings
  • Appeals to Immigration Tribunal and higher courts
  • Some judicial reviews
  • Visa for spouse, fiancée or partner
  • Settlement Applications on basis of long residency
  • Indefinite Leave to Remain applications
We can’t help with
  • Asylum applications and appeals for people in Detention Centres

Please email to book an appointment and we will get back to you within two working days. 

I don’t know what I’d have done without the Law Centre. Thanks to them, I’ve got my certificate and British citizenship ceremony. I’ve got proper ID to go for a job.
