Grant to Just for Kids Law 07 Sep 2017
towards three years' continuation funding of the salary of a Youth Advocate at a project providing advocacy, support and advice to disadvantaged children and young people in London
Just For Kids Law plans to grow impact through its policy and influencing work, by building on success of recent campaigns, and by advocating for a new Youth Justice Legal Centre. It aims to set up an office in East London to respond to increasing demand from the area and will pilot the Advocacy Year programme that will increase local level support for young people.
Just for Kids Law is interested in learning lessons from their campaigning and communications activities in relation to a key legal case on student finance for young people whose immigration status meant they were unable to access student loans: R(Tigere) v Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills  UKSC 57. The study will examine the ways in which an organisation can plan a strategic litigation campaign on a particular issue and assess the benefits and risks associated with these activities.
