ABOUT US

THE FOCUS

We want to help EEA citizens and their families find certainty.

 

Our immigration services are designed to support EEA citizens’ applications for Settled Status, Permanent Residency and/or Citizenship. If things get complicated, Here for Good will also support individuals to source free or affordable legal help.

THE FIGHT

The referendum might be over, but the fight for a clear and fair policy on citizens’ rights continues.
 

Our goal is simple: to help those who need it most. We don’t exist to support politicians or political parties, we’re here to support people. We’re willing to work with anyone who shares our vision.

THE CHALLENGES

Brexit can feel remote and abstract, but the work of Here for Good is not about Customs Unions or Single Markets, it’s about families and livelihoods.


Brexit might be getting closer, but certainty still feels far away. This makes it even more important to empower EEA citizens as much as we can.

OUR VISION

Our vision is simple: we want all EEA citizens and their families know their immigration status, and we want citizens who need access to legal advice to get it - for free.

MAPPING 

Mapping free immigration and support services across the UK

OUR STORY

Here for Good was founded by Tahmid Chowdhury and Isabella Mosselmans, two young law graduates who wanted to stand up for citizens' rights. After Brexit, Tahmid and Isabella were concerned that the rights of EU citizens were being forgotten. As it became clear that the government wasn't going to prioritise giving EU citizens security, Tahmid and Isabella set out to do it themselves. 

 

In July 2016, Tahmid co-founded The People's Challenge, a campaign group established to challenge the Government’s stance that Article 50 could be triggered without Parliament's approval. Following victory in the Supreme Court, the group has continued extensive lobbying work on citizens' rights.

 

Here for Good was born from this vital work to bring about more immediate social impact on citizens' lives. Isabella, who was nominated one of the LSE’s top 20 inspirational women in 2015, has experience in running her own charitable project, sits on the Policy and Programmes Committee for a leading UK NGO, and is embarking on a career in immigration law. This, combined with her understanding of frontline pro-bono legal advice and unrivaled passion for social justice, made her a perfect fit for the charity. 

 

In May 2017, with the support of two partners at Bindmans LLP, Here for Good was officially founded, and Tahmid and Isabella set out to ensure their idea became a reality.
