Two more years funding for key legal actions to protect young migrants

The Strategic Legal Fund for vulnerable young migrants will continue for two more years, hosted by Trust for London  with co-funding from us along with new partners Unbound Philanthropy. Since the Fund was launched in December 2011, it has made 54 grants totalling £636,860.

It has so far made a contribution to important judgements on Exceptional Funding, the Residence Test for Legal Aid, the rights of trafficked people to compensation from their employers and the UK Border Agency's duty to consider child safeguarding and welfare in all aspects of immigration decisions.
