Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants (UK)

Not for profit organisations and private law firms that work with young migrants can apply for grants of up to £30,000 through the Strategic Legal Fund (SLF) for Vulnerable Young Migrants.

Grants are available 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:

  • Asylum
  • Immigration
  • Human rights
  • Family law
  • Community care
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Mental health; etc.

The SLF only funds two kinds of strategic legal action. These are pre-litigation research and “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 the 14th November 2016.
