The Manuel Bravo Project is a charitable organisation which helps asylum seekers who are unable to find adequate legal representation.

 

The Project is volunteer-based with barristers, solicitors, law students and other individuals volunteering their time.

 

We seek to complement our legal advice by referral to and working with other organisations serving asylum seekers.

 

Asylum Facts

 

  1. People fleeing persecution have a legal right to apply for asylum
  2. Over 1 in 4 initial decisions to refuse asylum are overturned at appeal
  3. Legal Aid is only granted for appeals judged to have a 50% chance of success and demand far exceeds capacity
  4. If an asylum seeker chooses to appeal, they have a short time to prepare for their hearing which will be within 4 weeks
