Our project is volunteer-led and made possible by support from our dedicated volunteer community, our generous funders and supporters, and New Unity, who provide our premises and lots of infrastructural support.
We launched in 2017 and in our first two years we submitted over 150 successful applications for recourse to public funds, as well as providing advice to over 300 families. When given recourse to public funds, these families and individuals have been able to lift themselves out of destitution. In all cases where applications were initially refused, we found public law lawyers to challenge the decisions via judicial review.
In the the past year, we have had a 100% success rate.
We have published a research project to support a strategic challenge to the policy.
We provided lunch, childcare and a warm welcome to around 40 people each week.
We want to continue to grow. Please help by volunteering or donating to our work.
