In partnership and with support from other organisations and individuals with similar aims and high standards of service, we:
- Raise awareness of the importance of registration
- Run a monthly casework surgery for young persons who are destitute, isolated or have very limited income
- Provide pro bono legal advice and casework for young persons
- Identify and carry out extensive legal research of law, policy and the application of these (some of this work has in the past been funded by the Strategic Legal Fund (SLF))
- Train lawyers and agencies working with young persons, such as Social Services and voluntary organisations
- Work in partnership with private, voluntary and statutory bodies to influence law, policy and practice
- Monitor unlawful and poor practice and challenge this by any legal remedy available
- Increase the capacity of advice in England and Wales by providing training and supporting advice agencies and other networks
PRCBC’s beneficiaries receive legal advice and assistance delivered by and under the supervision of Solange Valdez-Symonds, solicitor and CEO.
We are grateful to Paul Hamlyn and Trust for London for funding some of PRCBC’s work.
