Would you, or someone you know, like help from Kids in Need of Defense UK? In order to assess your needs we ask you to complete our referral form and provide us with as much detail as you are able to. We require lots of information about your circumstances so that we can see whether your case is suitable for our service or whether there might be a different option for you.
After you have submitted the referral form you will receive a message requesting that you upload and email to us any documents that will help us assess your case.
We understand that you might not be able to answer every question we ask. You may not have many documents either but we request that you provide as much information as you are able to.
The information you provide will be sent to Central England Law Centre where we will check which Kids in Need of Defense UK hub should consider your case. Your personal details, information and documents will then be sent to the supervising lawyer at one of our hubs. They will contact you to confirm whether or not Kids in Need of Defense UK can help you.
This means that your personal information can be shared with any of the Kids in Need of Defense UK hubs and with our pro bono partners. You should read through our data protection policy to make sure you understand how your information will be used.
We currently have long waiting lists which means it's difficult to say how long it will take for your case to be allocated although it may take more than three months. If you are thinking about instructing a private lawyer because you cannot wait that long we suggest you watch this first.
