Asylum law advice service preserved by Comic Relief grant

PUBLISHED December 22, 2011

A specialised support programme for female asylum seekers will be resurrected after a ?120,000 Comic Relief grant.

Rochdale Law Centre was forced to close the project in March after a previous three-year grant came to an end. The service had offered legal advice to more than 200 people claiming asylum or humanitarian protection in the UK.

The future of the scheme has now been assured for a further three years after the confirmation of the money from April 2012.
