The Strategic Legal Fund (SLF)

The next application deadline is 4 May 2021

The Strategic Legal Fund (SLF) is a fund to support legal work 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 migrant groups in the UK.

The SLF aims to tackle injustices and inconsistencies in law and practice that disadvantage or discriminate against people as a result of their migration status. They do this by making grants to organisations to:

  • Undertake pre-litigation research, or
  • Make third party interventions to ensure that the key legal points are made in existing cases.

Those eligible to apply to the SLF  include organisations based in the UK which are Not-for-profit (NFP) organisations that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants.

All applicants must demonstrate that staff have appropriate skills, experience, and expertise, to undertake the strategic legal work proposed.
