HOW WE CAN HELP

Here for Good is here to support those who need it the most.

Our network​ of immigration lawyers, both full time and volunteers, spans the country. In the past year, they have taken on over 500 complex cases; many for individuals who are the most at-risk and/or vulnerable in society.

If you think you need our help, follow the steps below:

  1. In the first instance, we ask that you try to find the answers you are looking for by using our self-help guide, ACT NOW.
     

  2. If you have further questions, you can also call our Phone Advice Line:

    • 0207 014 2155

      • Monday, 09:30 - 11:30

      • Wednesday, 11:30 - 13:30

      • Friday, 13:30 - 15:30

    • 0115 964 4112

      • Tuesday, 09:00 - 11:00​

      • Thursday, 15:00 - 17:00
         

  3. If you do need further advice, please complete our Means-testing Form, to help us better understand your situation and determine what sort of advice you need. 

    While we want to help as many EU, EEA and Swiss citizens as possible, as well as their families, our priority is to support those with limited access to immigration advice, particular vulnerabilities and/or complex cases. As such, we will consider your enquiry in line with our Means-testing Policy. 

    Once you complete this form, a caseworker will aim to be in touch within 5-10 working days. Please note, during very busy periods, it may take slightly longer than this. We appreciate your patience. Please call our telephone advice line if the matter is urgent.

Complex case referrals from charities and support organisations
 

If you are a charity or support organisation that would like to refer a case to Here for Good for 1-2-1 support, please download this Referral Form and this Means-testing Form, complete them with the client, and send them both to the email address specified in the Referral Form. 

 
 
 

OUR AIM

The purpose of our work is simple: to empower EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members (‘European citizens’) through helping them secure their status in the UK.  In the aftermath of the EU referendum, immigration advice services were critically unprepared for Brexit.

When Here for Good launched, our research demonstrated that there was a significant barrier to EU, EEA and Swiss citizens, and their families, in accessing legal advice. Support is either too expensive or too far away. 

'Advice deserts' are areas of the country that Here for Good identified as having high numbers of these citizens, but not enough free and relevant legal advice to support them.

Through our different operations, we aim to address these shortages and help European citizens and their families secure their rights in the UK.
