Legal Education Foundation - Justice Collaborations


In response to a question from a Member, the Managing Director of BHE advised that CBT had a history of supporting the advice sector, including legal advice. The support provided by CBT was used to complement other forms of support and towards funding pro bono legal work. The Chair confirmed that grants of this nature were within the remit of the Bridging Divides strategy, but could be taken into consideration for the next CBT strategic review.


RESOLVED – That the BHE Board agree a grant of £500,000 over three years (£200,000; £150,000; £150,000) to The Legal Education Foundation – Justice Collaborations (TLEF) to contribute to the second round of grants for specialist immigration advice services in London.
