Justice Together which is a new initiative aiming to create a fairer and more accessible UK immigration system has opened its first grant round for applications to become advice and influencing partners.
Justice Together will award grants to fund free or low-cost specialist immigration advice and representation (OISC level two and above); and for influencing work at a national and local level.
Influencing grants can cover a wide range of activities including strategic litigation, research, public affairs, alliance building between advice providers and grassroots groups, community lawyering and community organising.
Advice grants in the first round will be available to organisations serving communities in three areas where Justice Together believes our funding will have an immediate effect: North East of England; North West of England; and Scotland.
Justice Together expects to fund two to three advice partners in each area for an initial three-year grant. Later advice grant rounds will be available in all regions throughout the four nations of the UK.
The deadline for round one advice grants is 5pm on the 17th February 2021, with awards expected to be announced in May 2021.
