A unique collaboration by independent funders to support the lawful and fair functioning of immigration, nationality, and asylum processes
Justice Together aims to ensure that people who use the UK immigration system can access justice and get on with their lives. It is a pooled fund that invests in free legal advice and local and national influencing to support the lawful and fair functioning of immigration, nationality, and asylum processes.
The initiative responds to the challenges faced by the legal advice sector, and evidence that people in communities around the UK are struggling to access justice. Justice Together will help people access legal advice and representation, strengthen sector organizations over the long term, and coordinate to achieve wider improvements so that advice is accessible, effective, and sustainably resourced.
Justice Together is committed to using a different approach to making long-term impact and aims to encourage the inclusion of people with lived experience.
In line with its values, Justice Together is bringing together organizations across the UK to use their collective power to leverage change in the immigration system, and to influence how the sector operates and how immigration advice is funded. Justice Together is rooted in the belief that a better coordinated and more strategic approach that is driven by lived experience will help address systemic challenges.
As well as offering funding, the initiative is supporting partners to improve the power and influence of people who use the system. Justice Together is hosted by Justice Collaborations, a registered charity and subsidiary of The Legal Education Foundation. Justice Together advances Unbound Philanthropy’s System strategy area.
