There is no legal aid funding in England, Wales and Northern Ireland for representation at an asylum support appeal. Appellants living in these areas generally have to attend their oral hearings with no legal representative.
In August 2021 the Scottish Legal Aid Board agreed that legal representation before the Asylum Support Tribunal would be covered by Scottish legal aid for appellants living in Scotland.
