MCF Humanitarian Awards 2017

IHRC Legal received the accolade at the Muslim Charities Forum’s inaugural event in recognition of the work it performs to help people facing discrimination in employment and immigration problems.

IHRC Legal is delighted to have its work recognised not least because the department is still in its infancy having been set up in 2014 in response to the high volume of requests it received for legal advice and representation.

The department specialises in employment and UK immigration law. It also advises on the full range of immigration applications to the Home Office. Immigration has become an increasingly large part of the department’s workload as a result of successive changes to legislation that make it difficult for people and their families to settle in the UK.

Its employment work is necessarily understated because of the sensitive nature of the work we are asked to do. Many clients and employers ask to remain anonymous which means that its successes rarely attract much publicity.
