The fund

As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, the SLF is currently not running regular funding rounds. Please note that we still accept out-of-rounds funding proposals where the urgency can be demonstrated.

We expect the SLF to be back up and running from September onwards when it will also expand its eligibility criteria. Please bear with us in the meantime. All current grants are being managed in-house by ILPA.

If you have any questions about your grant, please email info@ilpa.org.uk.

The Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants (SLF) is a fund to support legal work in the UK that goes beyond securing justice for an individual and makes a significant contribution to law, practice and procedures to uphold and promote the rights of vulnerable migrant children and young people more generally.

The SLF aims to tackle injustices and inconsistencies in law and practice that disadvantage or discriminate against vulnerable young migrants as a result of their migration status. We do this by making grants to organisations to:

  • undertake pre-litigation research, or
  • make third party interventions to ensure that the key legal points are made in existing cases.

The SLF is an initiative delivered by The Immigration Law Practitioners' Association (ILPA) in partnership with Trust for London, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Unbound Philanthropy, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
