Free legal advice across Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan, tackling social welfare issues including welfare benefits, debt, housing and employment law.
Asylum Justice is the only charitable organisation in Wales, and one of only two operating in the United Kingdom, offering free legal advice and representation to asylum seekers, recognised refugees and other vulnerable migrants. No other organisation provides this service in Wales and consequently Asylum Justice is the last and only place that people can turn to for help when they fear for their lives or the safety of their family in their country of origin. In addition, Asylum Justice provides free legal representation to other migrants pushed to the margins of society, such as women previously trafficked to the UK or who are victims of domestic violence. We represent this group in applications to obtain legal status in the UK, an area of law no longer covered by legal aid.
