The Exceptional Case Funding Project at Hackney Migrant Centre assists those who are eligible to make an immigration application but fall out of automatic eligibility for legal aid.


The project does not take direct referrals – only those who have been through the initial triage process can be referred. See website for details.

Central England Law Centre holds regular clinics to assist people to apply for ECF.  Once Central England Law Centre receive ECF for a client we often hand over the case and the funding to other law firms to progress. Notably, Central England Law Centre do not offer ECF for anything other than immigration at the moment.
