What difference will you make?

The ROMILDAMOR Foundation works to enable survivors of Human Trafficking and Gender Based Violence to have access to Legal Support & the holistic needs necessary to help them re-integrate safely back into society. With our current climate, it has been difficult for survivors to access free legal representation as most law firms are overwhelmed with the number of refugees seeking asylum in the UK. By working in this role, you will enable survivors to gain access to representation, help them claim asylum and obtain the Humanitarian Protection that they need and deserve.
