Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants (England & Wales)
The Trust for London and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation are providing £360,000 as part of the Strategic Legal Fund (SLF) for Vulnerable Young Migrants.
Grants of up to £30,000 are available to NGOs and private law firms to undertake strategic legal work to benefit children and young people who are significantly disadvantaged by migration status.
The fund will accept applications in any area of law that affects vulnerable young migrants including:
• Human rights
• Family law
• Community care
• Mental health; etc.
The SLF only funds two kinds of strategic legal action. These are:
• Pre-litigation research
• “third party intervention” in an existing case.
The maximum grant length is 12 months, and most grants are for around six months.
The next closing date for applications is 7th March 2016.
