Our vision & mission
Justice Together is a funder collaboration that aims to operate for a decade. As well as offering funding, we will support our grant partners to build the power and influence of people with lived and learned experience of the immigration system and embed anti-racism strategies.
Our vision is that people who use the immigration system can access justice fairly and equally, so that they can get on with their lives.
Our mission is to build a community of people and organisations with diverse backgrounds, strengths, and experience to transform access to justice in the UK immigration system. Through grant-making and collaboration, we will connect lived experience, front-line advice and influencing strategies to create lasting change.

Publication of common themes from our national consultation
Before setting out on its mission, the Justice Together Initiative undertook an extensive consultation with people and organisations across the United Kingdom to better understand the needs, challenges and opportunities concerning access to justice in the immigration system.
Our consultation showed an appetite for collaboration and coordination, strengthening specialist advice, building leadership amongst people with lived experience, sharing learning and best practices and supporting frontline work to feed into influencing and policy work. These themes were incorporated into Justice Together’s strategy launched in December 2020 and fed into the development of our grant process.
