Aims/priorities: The Strategic Legal Fund (SLF) for migrant groups in the UK is a fund to support legal work in the UK that goes beyond securing justice for an individual and makes a significant contribution to law, practice and procedures to uphold and promote the rights of asylum seekers, refugees and migrants more generally.
The SLF aims to tackle injustices and inconsistencies in law and practice that disadvantage or discriminate against asylum seekers, refugees and migrants as a result of their migration status.
Who can apply? Applications will be considered from:
- Not-for-profit organisations that provide specialist level legal advice to people discriminated or disadvantaged by their migration status.
- Firms of solicitors that provide specialist level legal advice to people discriminated or disadvantaged by their migration status. Firms need to demonstrate that the funded work does not include any element of profit and there is a pro bono element included.
Grant amount: Up to £30,000 however groups are encouraged to apply for lesser amounts. The average grant size is around £12,000. The maximum grant length is 12 months, though most grants are for six months or less.
Application process: Guidelines and an application form can be found on the ILPA website.
