The Campaigning Toolkit is a comprehensive printed and online resource for people at risk of removal, and the groups working to support them.
The Toolkit aims help migrants understand the asylum and immigration systems, to know their rights, and to be as well-equipped as possible to make a successful application. In the case of a refusal, we hope the Toolkit enables migrants to know what a campaign is, whether it’s right for them, and to be at the centre of the campaign and of all of the decisions made.
The print copy of the Toolkit is a 128 page A5 booklet. Part One sets out different ways of campaigning for the right to stay in the UK that may be useful in an individual campaign. The strategies could be used individually, or in combination. Some of the actions are public, others can be taken up in non-public campaigning.
Part Two gives an explanation of the procedures for applying for asylum or immigration status. It is a general overview, it is not legal advice. No guide can be a substitute for quality legal representation, but this section should help people to understand the system, and their place within it.
Most of the Toolkit is written addressing a person going through the process, but is intended to be used by anyone who finds it useful in supporting migrants through anti-deportation campaigns.
NCADC does not provide Immigration Advice as defined in section 82 v of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999. Material in this Toolkit is not, and should not be understood as, legal advice. The Toolkit aims to explain legal processes and terminology to those without a legal background.
The Toolkit is available as an A5, 128 page booklet. To order a printed copy, please get in touch.
The toolkit is free, but if you would like to support the funding of distribution and updating, you can make a donation. Suggested donation per copy is £5.00. You can donate by cheque (made payable to NCADC), by standing order or by online bank transfer. Contact a Campaigns Coordinator for details.
