There is no public funding available for legal representation for asylum support appeals. As a result, the vast majority of the appellants attend their oral hearings with no legal representative.
To fill this gap, our Duty Scheme provides asylum seekers with free legal representation and advice at the First-tier Tribunal (Asylum Support).
If you are advising a client with an appeal hearing at the Tribunal, we might be able to represent them for free. Make a referral
