Description

The City, University of London and No5 Chambers Immigration Human Rights Project works with student volunteers to help young adults, families and survivors of human trafficking to move forward, protect their fundamental human rights and escape destitution. Student volunteers from City are trained by barristers from the prestigious No5 Chambers to assist particularly vulnerable people to uphold their human rights. Clients referred into the project receive specific assistance from a student volunteer to prepare legal aid applications so that clients can receive the legal help needed to regularise their immigration status in the UK.

We need dedicated volunteers who can work independently with vulnerable clients. We need volunteers with strong written and oral communication skills and preferably some experience with direct client work.

Like our volunteers, our Student Directors must be organised, responsible and professional. Our team works directly with clients and their work will be supervised by barristers from No5 Chambers. Volunteers assist clients throughout London and attend meetings at the office of our referral charities or at Chambers.
