We are delighted to be embarking on a new chapter in the life of the Toolkit, thanks to a grant from the Legal Education Foundation.

Over the next year or so, we will be taking a deep dive into website statistics, talking to organisations across the UK, and holding community focus groups sessions with users of the Toolkit, and potential users.

As the holiday season approaches, alongside the prospect of another brief summer in the UK, those of us privileged enough to do so find ourselves arriving at airports, eagerly awaiting our escapism. But most holiday makers do not know that their chosen airport is a prison to those who want to stay in the UK.

We are very excited to announce the launch of brand new videos about the UK asylum system, a joint project between Refugee Info Bus, Right to Remain and Sara Khyat Art Work.

Based on the Right to Remain Toolkit, with translations by Refugee Info Bus and with stunning animation by Sara, these videos will help people understand their rights at crucial stages of the asylum process.

At this year’s British Society of Criminology conference, the co-developer of our asylum navigation board Dr Victoria Canning explains why we came up with the board, how it works, and why it’s so important.

This week, there’s been devastating stories of lives lost because of borders.

We will not forget them.

And we will continue working with others for change. There’s so many of us who want a better world.

We are proud to be part of this short film from Child Migrant Stories, now available on YouTube.

Child Migrants Welcome? explores the welcome received by unaccompanied child refugees both historically under the Kindertransport scheme before World War Two and today.

If you are detained, there can be big difficulties in accessing the legal advice you need to challenge your detention and/or progress your legal case.

The report argues that the existing systems of funding, contracting and auditing, which perversely protect the market position of poorer-quality providers, create advice deserts and droughts, and drive up demand and cost in the asylum and legal aid systems.

Ken Macharia reported to the Home Office last week, flanked by his Bristol Bisons team-mates.

Practical solidarity is needed every day, in quiet ways and loud, to survive and succeed in navigating the legal system.

At Right to Remain, we have seen just how many lives and communities have been ruined (and indeed how many lives have been lost) by Theresa May’s Hostile Environment.

So it was a lovely surprise when someone tweeted that, to celebrate the news of May’s resignation, she was donating to our work.
