The Right to Remain Toolkit was initially developed in 2011, in response to a consultation of refugee and migrant support groups and communities across the UK.
The clear demand from the consultation was that, in the face of drastic legal aid cuts and diminishing support services, members of these groups needed information on how to navigate the legal process and take action to be able to establish their legal right to remain in the UK.
Since then, the uptake of the Toolkit – particularly in its online format – has soared with many thousands of people using our resources (the Toolkit and our legal updates blog) every month.
We are therefore delighted to embark 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 interviews with users of the Toolkit, and potential users.
We are really excited to be getting out and about, hearing from the people who need our resources most, and taking the Toolkit to the next level.
