A new audio-video resource, based on the Right to Remain Toolkit and made with help from our friends MaMa in Liverpool.

The guide was created in partnership with families who access Hackney Migration Centre, and Project 17, Akwaaba, Nelma, Migrants Rights Network and Together With Migrant Children.

Since January 2015, nearly 1,700 applications for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK from people with Tier 1 leave to remain have been refused by the Home Office, under paragraph 322(5) of the immigration rules.

We have revamped the Right to Remain Toolkit, creating a new page that looks just at “Article 8” family/private life cases – a type of human rights application for the right to remain in the UK.

In this context, we are talking about someone seeking the right to stay in the UK because they need medical treatment that is not available to them in their country of origin.

Cases involving human rights/medical grounds are particularly complicated, and often very distressing. 

It’s great to hear about the Toolkit in action!

Here’s Abid Haq, solicitor at Neil Barnes Solicitors in Glasgow, on how he uses the Toolkit with his clients.

Free Movement have produced this very useful walk-through video, on the EU settled status application.

Right to Remain has teamed up with the brilliant Refugee Info Bus to translate some sections of our popular toolkit into eight languages.

In 2015, the government introduced an “immigration health surcharge” (IHS) as part of some applications for leave to enter/remain in the UK.

In January, the surcharge amount doubled.

If you have evidence you wish to submit to the Home Office to consider as a fresh claim after you are “appeal rights exhausted”, in most cases you need to make an appointment to submit the evidence in person at the Further Submissions Unit in Liverpool.
