Latest grants from the Strategic Legal 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 have recently awarded two grants via our out-of-rounds procedure for urgent proposals. If you have an urgent proposal please contact ILPA via our email and we will contact you as soon as possible. The two grants we awarded were as follows:

Project 17 has been awarded funding to fund the costs of intervening in W&J v Secretary of State for the Home Department CO/3036/2019, a judicial review challenging the No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) scheme as it relates to the parents of British children granted leave to remain under the ten-year route to settlement.

JCWI has been awarded funding to work with the Public Law Project ('PLP'), to investigate a challenge to 'Presidential Guidance Note No. 1/2020: Arrangements during the COVID-19 Pandemic'.

We expect the SLF to be back up and running with regular funding rounds from September onwards when it will also be expanding its eligibility criteria. Please bear with us in the meantime.
