At JustRight Scotland we have a strong reputation in the area of children’s rights.
JustRight for Refugee Children (JRRC) aims to better refugee and migrant children’s access to protection and rights in all spheres of their lives. We use our expertise to provide a child-centred legal service which specifically focuses on the areas where refugee and migrant children find it difficult to realise their rights, including in the immigration/asylum and child care system systems. We also deliver specialist second-tier advice, as well as training and outreach, to better societal and professional understanding of refugee and migrant children’s rights.
Kids in Need of Defense UK is a collaboration between KIND, Inc., a US non-profit organisation serving migrant children with legal representation, and four UK not-for-profit immigration and children’s rights organisations: Central England Law Centre (which is leading the project); Coram Children’s Legal Centre, the Migrant and Refugee Children’s Legal Unit at Islington Law Centre, and our JRRC project at JustRight Scotland.
Kids in Need of Defense UK aims to achieve a self-sustaining pro bono model of legal representation for migrant children and young people where there is inadequate, or no, legal aid representation available. It builds partnerships with law firms and businesses which will, in turn, provide lawyers who will give their time, pro bono, to children and young people in need of immigration and nationality legal advice and representation.
