Advice on Individual Rights in Europe (AIRE) Centre

Legal support for vulnerable EU women

In the wake of Brexit, demand for our specialist services is higher than ever. We are finding that vulnerable EU women are amongst the most affected groups with little or no other means of support and we intend to meet this need to ensure that they receive fair access to justice.

Situation

The project is trying to solve the lack of access to legal information for vulnerable European women who are experiencing rights denials linked to their immigration status. We aim to reduce the incidences of rights abuses through early intervention in their cases. We are also responding to an increasing demand to build the capacity of public services and voluntary groups to support these women in complex cases to fight rights abuses.

Solution

Our project aims to respond to the problem with a multifaceted approach. The legal advice line is open five days a week and responds to calls from both individuals and practitioners. We provide specialised training and capacity building programmes, and our self-help education toolkits are designed to equip vulnerable women with information and guidance on their cases. When needed we can also provide legal representation.
