MANUEL BRAVO PROJECT

The Manuel Bravo Project is a new charitable organisation which is starting to help asylum seekers who are unable to find adequate legal representation. The Project is volunteer-based with barristers, solicitors, law students and lay volunteers giving their time to assist people. Any immigration advice is provided by the solicitor or barrister as an individual rather than from the Project.
Following a referral, the papers are reviewed by an immigration specialist. Clients are invited to attend an advice session – usually a Tuesday evening. Teams of qualified lawyers from Leeds law firms then help the client to prepare their case for hearing on a pro bono (free) basis under the supervision and guidance of specialist immigration barristers.
Volunteers ensure the smooth running of the sessions, carry out country information research, undertake administrative tasks at sessions and support the client through the process. We do not currently have resources to represent clients at the hearing itself.

ASYLUM MATTERS

Asylum Matters is an advocacy and campaigns project, hosted by City of Sanctuary, that works in partnership locally and nationally to improve the lives of refugees and people seeking asylum through social and political change. It is incorporating and building on the work of the Still Human Still Here coalition and the Regional Asylum Activism (RAA) Project.

The mandate of Asylum Matters is to secure the goals identified at the Sanctuary Summit in 2014 which have been endorsed by more than 320 organisations as part of the Birmingham Declaration.

The goals incorporated in this Declaration include:
• Improved decision making, so protection is granted to all those who need it
• Improved access to good quality legal advice and representation
• An end to the indefinite detention of asylum seekers and migrants
• An end to destitution, by providing sufficient support to all asylum seekers to ensure that they can meet their essential living needs while in the UK
• Permission to work for asylum seekers whose case has taken more than six months, or they have been refused and are temporarily unable to return home
• Free access to healthcare for all asylum seekers while they are in the UK
• Asylum seekers to be welcomed & befriended on arrival, and offered free language tuition so they can fully participate and contribute to the local community
