The fantastic team of volunteers at BRR is fundamental to the work of the organisation. Without the energy and commitment of volunteers we simply could not deliver our services.
If you need urgent help with your house, money or asylum claim, you can contact the Advice team by email, phone, text message or WhatsApp.
Please note, that due to the large number of cases, it may be as long as a week before we call you back.
We can offer general advice on the claims process, and can help you to understand your own asylum or migration status, and what you may need to do next. We cannot represent you in your asylum or immigration application.
We are registered with the Offices of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC), Ref No. N201600021, and a number of our staff and volunteers are qualified to provide advice up to OISC Level 3 for asylum and up to Level 2 for immigration. We provide immigration advice in compliance with current OISC Regulations.
We do not currently provide OISC representation or casework but support our members to understand what is happening with their immigration case, the stage they are at in the process and what their options are. If they don’t have anyone to represent them, we will support them to find someone.
If we cannot help you, we will try and find another organisation that can.
If you are struggling with an asylum claim, or need more information about how to start a claim, you might find the Right to Remain Tookit useful.
The Toolkit gives an overview of the legal system and procedures, with detailed information on rights and options at key stages, and actions you can take in support of your claim, or to help someone else.
As well as a comprehensive written guide, the Toolkit also contains several helpful videos which are available in 5 languages: English, Arabic, Farsi, Spanish and French.
The Toolkit is available on the Right to Remain website.
