Immigration and Asylum
The Immigration and Asylum Project aims to support asylum seekers who lack the funds to make an asylum claim. This year, the project is working with the British Red Cross and New Evidence Search Team (NEST), volunteering with their Refugee Services team. This role involves working on asylum cases, working directly with the client and other team members. This experience will provide you with more knowledge of the asylum process and exposure to working with clients. The British Red Cross also provides outstanding training to ensure you are equipped for the role, which will give lots of assistance to anyone wishing to study immigration law or work in the immigration field.
The project team will continue to volunteer with NEST. This involves being allocated clients and meeting with them to understand their claims. We then help them to find fresh evidence to submit with their new claim, enabling them to hopefully make a successful claim to seek asylum in the UK.
Being a member of the Immigration and Asylum Project exposes you to new experiences and great amounts of client exposure. It enables you to learn about the asylum process and to give back to society by helping those who are in desperate need.
