Every member of our team is experienced and trained to work with women and girls who have been affected by violence.
We provide specialist, early and targeted legal casework to migrant women and girls in the fields of asylum and immigration law and other relevant legal matters, including FGM, Forced Marriage, Domestic Violence and anti-trafficking.
We also use our experience to contribute to these areas, and others, at the policy level through Scottish Government working groups and networks.
