My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our team's fundraising page for the 2020 London legal sponsored walk. We're taking on 10K for justice on the 5th October.[/p][p]Despite the postponement of the London Legal Walk due to COVID-19, many of us will still be marking 8th June with a virtual [url=https://www.londonlegalsupporttrust.org.uk/our-events/london-legal-walk-2020/10,000-steps-for-justice/]10,000 Steps for Justice[/url], before coming together in solidarity and support for frontline free legal advice services at the main walk in October. The virus is creating an urgent and unprecedented need for advice agency services and it is vital that they continue to receive funding during this difficult period.[/p][p]We are fundraising to support The Unity Project's vital work by taking part in the [url=http://www.londonlegalsupporttrust.org.uk/]London Legal Support Trust’s[/url] 2020 sponsored walk. Please support us walking (and running!) 10K for justice on the 5th October![/p][p]We are a community of people that exist to support migrants with 'No Recourse to Public Funds' (NRPF) through legal advice, policy change and solidarity.[/p][p]Since we opened in 2017, we've supported over 300 families and individuals who are affected by the government's 'hostile environment' policies designed to exclude migrants from accessing healthcare, welfare support, education and legal justice.[/p][p]The 'No Recourse to Public Funds' (NRPF) policy is applied to tens of thousands of people's immigration status every year. People with NRPF can work and pay tax but are excluded from accessing essential benefits and housing support. Almost all of the people we support have young children. Many have been affected by illness or a long-term disability or simply cannot work because they are pregnant. NRPF removes an essential safety net intended to support people through financially difficult times and protect them from poverty. As a result it leaves thousands of people, including children, destitute and homeless. [/p][p]The Unity Project assists people experiencing homelessness and destitution to make the complex immigration application to remove the NRPF exclusion so that they can access benefits and housing support. [/p][p]We are also working collaboratively with other organisations to hold the government to account and campaign for system change. Visit [url=https://www.unity-project.org.uk/]our website[/url] to read more about the work we do. [/p][p][b]Thank you for your support! We also welcome anyone who would like to join our team and walk with us on the day![/b][/p]
