Frontline Immigration Advice Project


Frontline Immigration
Advice Project

Vulnerable migrants need accurate, high quality advice. Without it they face injustice and destitution.

Since 2016, Refugee Action’s Frontline Immigration Advice Project (FIAP) has been helping organisations working with them to provide that advice.

We do this by training advisers, supporting advice model development and helping organisations get Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) registered. Then we continue to support them in their practice. This leads to more free, good quality immigration advice available to refugees and asylum seekers.

FIAP is a project from Refugee Action’s Good Practice and Partnerships service.
