Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) is an independent national charity which exists to campaign for justice in immigration, nationality and refugee law and policy.
JCWI have considerable experience of securing release from detention by way of bail, by assisting with unlawful detention claims in the higher courts and have a proven track record in winning appeals against deportation.
A price list is available here and they run regular surgeries every Tuesdays, by appointment. However be mindful that they’ve not updated the website very recently.

This is an independent charity that provides bail for asylum seekers and migrants in removal centres and prisons, and challenges immigration detention in the UK.
Medical Justice offers independent medical advice and assessments to immigration detainees. They provide reports that can be used to support asylum claims, and letters outlining significant medical concerns in detention centres. If you or someone you know is suffering a medical condition while being detained, these are the people to contact.
AVID provides support, training and information to volunteers who visit people being detained in Immigration Removal Centres. These volunteers make sure that people being detained are not ignored, or alone. They have a network of visitor’s groups covering the entire UK.
The UK Visa Bureau is an independent immigration advisory service that provides advice, information and case management to individuals, families and businesses.
However their news page was last updated in 2013 and they still offer an eligibility test for the Tier 1 Post-Study Work Visa, which was discontinued several years ago. This suggests their advice may also be out of date.
