Pro Bono Assistance Scheme

Legal Rights Partnership have set up a pro bono assistance scheme to help people facing financial difficulties who wish to apply to change their ‘No recourse to public funds’ (NRPF) visa condition or who wish to apply for a fee waiver due to an inability to afford Home Office fees.

The pro bono assistance scheme is strictly limited to applications to lift the NPRF condition and to apply for fee waivers. No advice on any other form of application to the Home office will be provided as part of this scheme. Therefore, please do not make an appointment under this scheme, if your enquiry does not relate to these matters.

Our pro bono advice clinic will be held on Wednesdays between 10.30 and 3.30pm and will be strictly by prior appointment only. We can only see people who have read and completed our form, available to download below or to collect from our reception. Please ensure you complete the form and bring as many documents as possible to the first appointment. The more information and documentation you bring the quicker we can deal with your enquiry and the more people we can help.

If you wish to make an appointment please call our reception on 0118 3215340 or come to our office at 84 Oxford Road, Reading, RG1 7LJ to make your appointment. When you speak to our reception you must state that you wish to make an appointment for the Pro Bono Assistance Scheme or you will be charged for the appointment. This service is limited to Berkshire residents only.
