Why get involved?

We support pro bono lawyers so that they can take on a case from start to finish. That means that our pro bono lawyers help a child, young person or their parent prepare and submit an application for citizenship or permission to reside in the UK. Read more

How we do it

Kids in Need of Defense UK partners with law firms and businesses. Their lawyers can then provide free legal representation to children and young people. We call them our pro bono lawyers because they give their time for the public good; not profit. Read more
