Thank you for visiting the Manuel Bravo Project website.

SERVICE UPDATE

Due to extremely high demand for our service, we are not currently accepting any new cases until week beginning Monday 12th July 2021. Anyone requesting our assistance before this date will be asked to contact us again on or after this date. You may still email office@manuelbravo.org.uk to request a referral form but this will not be assessed or allocated before the above date.

We are also experiencing temporary disruption to our office cover and this means we are not able to answer the phone or reply to emails as quickly as we would like to. Every enquiry is important to us and we hope to resume our normal coverage shortly. Please make sure that when calling, you are prepared to leave a message that states your name, your contact number and the matter you are calling about. We will be unable to return calls if we do not have all of this information.

Existing Manuel Bravo Project clients can expect a response to their call/email within 3 working days unless the matter is urgent (please let us know if the matter is urgent when leaving a message).

INITIAL ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT EXISTING CLIENTS

We are still operating our outreach service in partnership with St Vincent’s telephone appointment only. We can provide initial advice, signposting and onward referral for a whole host of asylum and immigration matters. To access this service:

Call St Vincent’s on 0113 248 4126 and ask to be placed on our outreach call back list. You will be asked to leave your name and a contact number.
You will be called back by a volunteer on Mondays only who will take some details about your asylum or immigration query. This is to make sure we understand the issue and can get you the right help. This person is not able to give you any legal advice.
Your information will be passed on to our specialist Caseworker who will call you back on Thursdays only to discuss the matter and provide you with legal advice and assistance.

We appreciate your patience as this process takes longer than face to face appointments, which we hope to resume when it is safe to do so.

We, like everyone, have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and are still very much trying to resume a service as close to ‘normal’ as possible! The safety of all of our clients, staff and volunteers is of upmost importance and we thank you for your patience and support while we work on this. We are very much open for business and will continue to grow and expand our service to meet the needs of our community.

Many thanks for your support,

Manuel Bravo Project
