Our services

Legal Representation

We provide legal representation for people who:

  • Are currently living anywhere in South Yorkshire
  • Have claimed asylum and been refused
  • Are Appeal Rights Exhausted
  • Don't have any other immigration legal support or representation in place

We will work with clients to explore their situation and where possible make fresh claims with the aim of securing grants of leave to remain in the UK.

We do not provide legal representation for people who:

  • are going through their initial asylum claim
  • are appealing against an initial asylum decision.
  • are living outside of South Yorkshire
  • need support with a private immigration matter such as a business or student visa

If you would like more information about what we do and what we can help with, you can contact us at info@syrlj.org.uk or on 07553 233 334.

What others say...


SYRLJ do everything in their power to challenge dehumanising legal structures. Their pace of work is unprecedented, driven by a deep passion for justice, they work holistically & professionally with their clients, advocating for and often attaining the best possible outcome. Our clients tell us SYRLJ are different, that they're treated with respect and that they can see SYRLJ are working hard for them. I see our clients visibly relax after a short period of working with SYLRJ, knowing that they are now, finally, in safe hands. SYRLJ are a bastion of high-quality, client-centred, empowering immigration advice. An oasis in the legal advice desert
