Strategic Legal Fund

ILPA is delighted to be the new host organisation for the Strategic Legal Fund for vulnerable young migrants.  We are responsible for administering the fund, which awards grants to support pre litigation research and interventions in areas that could benefit young migrants. 

We have identified strategic legal work as a key means of achieving change and promoting a just and equitable immigration, asylum and nationality law practice. Hosting the Strategic Legal Fund provides ILPA with the opportunity to become aware of innovative strategies for promoting the rights of young migrants at the earliest possible stage, to support and shape this work and to explain, and disseminate information about, victories won. The fund reaches beyond immigration to all areas of law touched by immigration status, often components of the ‘hostile environment’ with which young migrants must contend.

More information on the Strategic Legal Fund can be found here.

The post-holder will have responsibility to oversee and coordinate the delivery of the Strategic Legal Fund for vulnerable young migrants.
