10+ Global Donors for Improving Lives of Children in Poor Countries
10+ Donors that believe in building NGO capacities for Civil Society Development

20+ Donors standing up for Human Rights and Equality

20+ Global Donors for Empowering Women and Girls
25+ Donors for the Empowerment of Youth
The right to life, survival and development.

Funding Information

The total amount available for SLF grants from October 2017 to September 2020 is £450,000. Maximum funding for any one application will be £30,000 but, in view of the limited funding available, lower applications are encouraged.

The SLF aims to complement longer-term funding with short-term grants to respond to legal opportunities. The maximum grant length is 12 months, and most grants are for six months or less.

Alerts
Areas of Law

The SLF funds strategic legal work in any area of law where vulnerable young migrants experience disadvantage or discrimination as a result of migration status.
This includes (but is not restricted to) potential cases in the areas of:
Immigration
Asylum and asylum support
Human rights
Education
Housing
Welfare benefits
Discrimination
Access to justice
Community care
Beneficiaries

The SLF supports strategic legal work in the UK which benefits vulnerable young migrants. They define this as:

Sample Proposals
Migrants or the children of migrants,
Who are under 25,
Who are living in poverty, and
Who face significant disadvantage or discrimination in connection with their (or their parents’) migration status
Eligibility Criteria

Those eligible to apply to the SLF are organisations based in the UK which are:

Not-for-profit (NFP) organisations that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants. If applicants work for a NFP organisation regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and are applying to undertake work in the asylum or immigration field, applicants must confirm that staff leading on the proposed work are accredited at Level 3, Advocacy and Representation, in the relevant category of law.
Firms of solicitors that provide specialist level legal advice to vulnerable young migrants. Solicitors’ firms need to demonstrate that the funded work does not include any element of profit and, as for all applicants, that there is a pro bono element included.
Exclusions

Ebooks
In general, the SLF will not make grants where:

Funding is sought for pre-litigation research on an issue where work is already in progress by other legal representatives.
There is an unreasonably low prospect of a positive outcome for vulnerable migrant children and young people.
The funding will not produce any significant positive change to the rights of vulnerable young migrants in the UK.
The applicant is based outside of the UK. Partnership applications where the lead partner is based in the UK may be considered.
It is judged that the goals of the application may be more successfully achieved through an alternative route e.g. policy work.
Organisations have already received two grants from the SLF in the last 18 months, except in exceptional circumstances.
Organisations are in serious financial deficit.
Not-for-profit organisations have significant unrestricted reserves (including designated funds). Generally, reserves up to the equivalent of six months’ expenditure is acceptable.
