supporting people who seek safety in the UK
About Justice First
The core purpose of Justice First is to work with people seeking asylum whose appeals have been rejected by the Home Office; seeking to help them re-engage with the legal system and avoid destitution by researching and helping to submit further evidence or a fresh claim, either directly or via immigration solicitors. We offer practical and emotional support; utilise volunteer befrienders and deliver refugee awareness training, presentations and talks. We are a unique service in the North East and work closely with, and refer people to other supportive organisations as appropriate.
