Our research

As part of developing the Justice Together initiative, we commissioned research including the following: 

An overview of immigration advice services in England and Wales

This report provides an overview of the immigration legal sector, examining the different types of immigration advisers, assessing the impact of the changes to legal aid and considering the groups most vulnerable to harm or injustice due to a lack of immigration advice and representation. It provides valuable insight for funders, service providers and policy makers.

The author, Saira Grant, explains how the report evolved and the increased relevance of the findings in the context of COVID-19 in her blog.
