The Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants (SLF) is a fund to support legal work in the UK that goes beyond securing justice for an individual and makes a significant contribution to law, practice and procedures to uphold and promote the rights of vulnerable migrant children and young people more generally.

The maximum grant available is £30,000 but, in view of the limited funding available, lower applications are encouraged. The average grant size is around £12,000. Grants are available to undertake strategic legal work to benefit children and young people (under the age of 25) who are significantly disadvantaged by migration status. The fund will accept applications in any area of law that affects vulnerable young migrants including immigration; asylum and asylum support; human rights; and education; etc.  The SLF only funds two kinds of strategic legal action. These are pre-litigation research and “third party intervention” in an existing case. The maximum grant length is 12 months, and most grants are for around six months.
