Help Charity get 100,000 signatures before heading to Downing Street
Could you spare a few mintues to help Charity Gada?
"My beautiful five year old daughter, Andrea, was killed just before Christmas after being hit by a car. An unbearable time has been made even worse as the Home Office refuses to give my only living relatives visas to attend the funeral.
My parents, along with my sister, have been denied visas to attend the funeral from Zimbabwe simply because they are 'too poor' and so the Home Office believes that my family wish to stay here illegally once they arrive. They do not. That's why I've started this petition to plea for my family to be allowed to attend. Please sign and pledge your support." (Charity Gada)
Who we are
Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit exists to ensure access to justice for people living in the local community who are survivors of torture, trafficking, abuse and conflict as well as divided families and others who are in need and affected by immigration controls.
What We Do
We provide free, confidential and independent specialist legal immigration and asylum advice and representation to people seeking entry or leave to remain in the UK.
We have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) to provide the service free to people who qualify for assistance under the Legal Help scheme, and we have a contract with Manchester City Council to provide an integrated immigration advice service to people who live in Manchester. Please see the menu on the left hand side for further details.
We also raise funds to represent people who are not eligible for Legal Aid for a number of reasons but who are very vulnerable. This includes young people, people who are destitute or women who are claiming asylum and who have been subject to violence.
