We are delighted to announce that the latest edition of the book version of the Right to Remain Toolkit, our self-help and solidarity guide to the immigration and asylum system, has arrived!
Tempting as it is to not look back at this year, it’s important to remember the small successes, and how we’ve survived this year to fight for a better one.
The latest video from our series on understanding the UK asylum and immigration system – this one is on understanding case law.
Find out what it is, where to find it, and how to use it in your legal case.
The first in a new type of resource from Right to Remain! A training session via video, based on the Right to Remain Toolkit and appeal hearing observing.
This 20 minute video looks at asylum and immigration appeals, with a particular focus on the appeal hearing.
As anyone attempting to make an online immigration application in recent weeks will know, the system is in a mess. A right royal mess.
In recent months, many applications have been made online only and the process has been outsourced to a company called Sopra Steria.
“The government’s position is that obtaining legal advice is not necessary in making an immigration application and that no advantage in the application process should accrue to people who choose to access, are able to afford legal advice, over those who cannot.”
Yesterday, the Guardian reported that, according to the response to their freedom of information request, the Home Office rejected 72% of applicants seeking a fee waiver for immigration applications in 2018.
At Right to Remain, our approach is about solidarity, self-help and mutual aid. A lot of our work is finding out what practical actions people are taking to survive and succeed in the asylum and immigration system, and sharing that with others facing the same problems.
