McKenzie Friends

What is a McKenzie Friend?

A McKenzie Friend is a member of the public, without formal legal training, who assists an appellant when they have no legal representative, at a time that is often bewildering and full of anxiety. A McKenzie Friend is a volunteer, independent of the court system and the Home Office.

Our team of committed volunteers work with people seeking asylum. We provide support to access legal advice and representation, and accompany people to court hearings to offer moral support.

At no point are people asked for any kind of financial contribution.
