About the Strategic Legal Fund

The Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants (SLF) is a fund to support legal work in the UK that goes beyond securing justice for an individual and makes a significant contribution to law, practice and procedures to uphold and promote the rights of vulnerable migrant children and young people more generally.

The SLF aims to tackle injustices and inconsistencies in law and practice that disadvantage or discriminate against vulnerable young migrants as a result of their migration status.

The SLF uses the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as a framework for its work with both children and young people.

It aims to advance the general principles of the UNCRC as follows:

-The right to life, survival and development.

-The right to non-discrimination.

-Respect for the views of children.

-The requirement to give primary consideration to the child’s best interests in all matters affecting them.


The SLF supports strategic legal work in the UK which benefits vulnerable young migrants. We define this as:

- Migrants or the children of migrants,

- Who are under 25,

- Who are living in poverty, and

- Who face significant disadvantage or discrimination in connection with their (or their parents’) migration status.

Areas of Law

The SLF funds strategic legal work in any area of law where vulnerable young migrants experience disadvantage or discrimination as a result of migration status.

This includes (but is not restricted to) potential cases in the areas of:

- Immigration

- Asylum and asylum support

- Human rights

- Education

- Housing

- Welfare benefits

- Discrimination

- Access to justice

- Community care

We do not usually fund work involving issues of criminal or family law unless they also involve one of the above issues.

The SLF may from time to time issue calls for applications in certain areas of law, or on particular points of law, which will then be given priority. Information about calls will be publicised on the SLF website.

Who we will fund

Those eligible to apply to the SLF are organisations based in the UK which are:

Not-for-profit (NFP) organisations that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants. If you work for a NFP organisation regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and are applying to undertake work in the asylum or immigration field, you must confirm that staff leading on the proposed work are accredited at Level 3, Advocacy and Representation, in the relevant category of law.

Firms of solicitors that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants. Solicitors’ firms need to demonstrate that the funded work does not include any element of profit and, as for all applicants, that there is a pro bono element included.

All applicants must demonstrate that staff has appropriate skills, experience and expertise to undertake the strategic legal work proposed. All applicants are asked to provide supporting documents with their application, for example annual accounts, governing documents, or other financial information.

The SLF welcomes applications from specialist legal representatives working in partnership with voluntary and community groups, who may be able to assist with research, gathering evidence and identifying clients. This type of application should be made by the legal representative with the other organisation(s) being subcontracted to do the work at an appropriate rate, including any pro bono element.

Please note that organisations may be in receipt of multiple grants simultaneously.

This is because the SLF does not want to deter organisations from applying that would be best suited to carry out the work.

Size of grants

The total amount available for SLF grants from October 2017 to September 2020 is

450,000 Pounds. Maximum funding for any one application will be 30,000 Pounds but, in view of the limited funding available, lower applications are encouraged. The average grant size is around 12,000 Pounds. You need to demonstrate that your application represents value for money. Grants may be approved for a lesser amount than requested.
