WHAT WE DO
Here for Good was founded back in 2018 to support Europeans and their family members to stay in the UK after Brexit by providing high-quality, free immigration advice.
Four years on, we are known as the ‘go-to’ charity for especially complex cases under the EU Settlement Scheme. Since we set up, our dedicated caseworkers have supported thousands of people to secure their rights in the UK.
Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we now also provide specialist immigration advice to Ukrainians and their families seeking sanctuary in the UK. In the past few months, we have advised hundreds of people, many of whom are unaccompanied young people trying to reach safety.
Here for Good also undertakes strategic litigation to challenge the Government’s unlawful policies.
The EUSS legal team engaged in strategic litigation work in relation to the Government’s guidance on coronavirus-related EU Settlement Scheme absence. New and updated Guidance was published which presented a more flexible approach and positively impacted many thousands of European citizens and their family members.
The EUSS legal team engaged in strategic work to challenge the Home Office's practice of refusing to issue EEA family permits to applicants that had applied to join their family in the UK or had won an appeal on a previous refusal after the end of June 2021. This left many families in limbo. Amendments were made to the Rules and the Guidance to allow these family members to enter the UK despite the closure of the EEA family permit route.
The Ukraine legal team is currently working on a challenge to the UK Home Office’s absence of provisions for unaccompanied young people fleeing Ukraine under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme.
