About the service

Here for Good supports hundreds of people every year to secure their UK immigration status under the EU Settlement Scheme. We run a free phone and email service for queries about the EU Settlement Scheme and we also take on 1-2-1 referrals.

Our advisers are based across expert law firms and organisations in the UK and fall under their supervisory and regulatory structures. We also have a network of volunteer lawyers who take cases on for us pro bono.

Here for Good is known as the ‘go-to’ organisation for complex cases in the sector. For our 1-2-1 casework, we use a means-based test and take on cases from organisations such as homelessness charities, local authorities and refuges. Nearly 60% of our clients experience economic vulnerability, 35% of them experience language barriers, 30% domestic violence and 17% homelessness.

In addition to our advice service, Here for Good carries out strategic legal work to challenge systemic issues that we come across in our casework. You can read more about our strategic work here.

“I am quite sure that even if ability to pay was no object, I would not have found someone as professional, capable and diligent as [our caseworker]. All along I had this sense that he cares deeply about his client and what happens to them and their case. In a process that to be honest is terrifying, these are invaluable qualities”

Resources

Immigration Advice Map

Here for Good has mapped the availability of advice providers and support services across the UK and London for contracts with the European Commission and the Greater London Authority (GLA).

These resources are freely available online through the EU Rights website and the GLA’s Migrant Londoners Hub.

We also conducted further research for the EU Delegation to the UK, identifying additional groups of hard-to-reach citizens that required additional support to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).

If you need help but you don’t know what’s available to you, find out here:

Immigration Rules Briefing

Donate

As a charity we rely on grants from Trusts and Foundations, as well as donations from the public. The official application deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme has passed, but the number of applications submitted to the Scheme remains high – around 50,000 applications a month. Those Europeans and family members who fail to secure their status under the EUSS are unable to access basic rights such as the right to work and rent and become subject to the UK government’s hostile environment policies.

Here for Good provides high-quality, free legal advice to ensure that particularly marginalised people are supported through the process of securing their immigration status to continue living in the UK post-Brexit. Any donation is gratefully accepted.
