Briefing on the Need for Legal Advice and Advocacy for Ukraine Nationals

When the conflict in Ukraine broke out, we reached out to our grant partners to identify what additional needs they may have, in relation to advice and influencing capacity.

A number of advice and support organisations reported a significant increase in demands on their services. Based on this assessment of need, we put out a request to funders for funding to support organisations.

Thanks to funder partners Paul Hamlyn Foundation, City Bridge Trust, Legal Education Foundation, AB Charitable Trust and the Metropolitan Migration Foundation and new funders the Disrupt Foundation an additional £570,000 has been raised. The majority of which has been granted to organisations providing vital advice and influencing work related to the conflict, with the aim of building capacity for organisations over the long term.
