    Services we Provide

    Asylum Seeker and Detainee Guidance

    An asylum detainee is someone who has been detained at the UK border after fleeing from persecution. To seek asylum, you must be unable to return to your home country because you fear persecution or danger. You can apply for asylum in the UK if your race, religion, nationality or political opinion means you risk persecution in your national country.

    If you have not applied for asylum or been granted refugee status and you have entered the UK, you may risk being detained by UK border control. If you are currently being detained in the UK for a breach of asylum laws then we can provide urgent support. This support includes help with your application for bail and your appeal process. One of our dedicated immigration lawyers will arrange a meeting with you and visit the UK Immigration Detention Centre where you are being held. We will organise family visits, arrange bail and act as your legal representative if your appeal is taken to a tribunal.

    We look forward to helping you with your case. You can contact us at our offices in LondonManchester, or Birmingham, or use our office finder to find your closest branch.

    For more information on the different Asylum and Detainee options available for you, please see below.

    We offer immigration advice sessions as face to face appointments at all of our UK offices, or via the phone.
