Bindmans partnership with Rainbow Migration shortlisted for LawWorks Pro Bono Award

2 mins

We are pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for the LawWorks Most Effective Pro Bono Partnership award at this year’s 2022 Pro Bono Awards.

Bindmans LLP has a longstanding partnership with Rainbow Migration, a charity that provides specialist legal information and advice, and practical and emotional support for LGBTQI+ people seeking asylum, as well as legal advice and information to LGBTQI+ people who want to live in the UK with their partners.

Members from our Immigration, Asylum and Nationality team have been volunteering for the charity for many years, providing legal information and advice to service users through monthly advice sessions. 

The annual LawWorks Pro Bono Awards are taking place on 6 December 2022 and celebrate the best legal pro bono activities undertaken by organisations and individuals, and the positive impact they have had on those helped.

Emma Cohen, associate in our Immigration, Asylum and Nationality team who volunteers with Rainbow Migration, comments:

In the years I have been a volunteer adviser with Rainbow Migration, the legal landscape for LGBTQI+ people wishing to join partners in the UK has changed significantly for the better. However, the path is not always straightforward, and the advice sessions offered by Rainbow Migration continue to be very important to many couples helping them to make successful immigration applications to enter and remain in the UK. We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award.
