About Us

It provides direct legal advice and assistance to those who are affected by the unfairness of the UK’s immigration control. JCWI also actively lobbies and campaigns for changes in law and practice.

JCWI has been instrumental in influencing debates on immigration and asylum issues in both the UK and at European level.

JCWI undertakes the following:
