RMC Impact


West Midlands Immigration Network Report

A year on since the project began, the report highlights some of the achievements of the Network in its first year of operation and presents the importance of working in partnership to increase capacity, improve quality and build teams resilient and equipped to work in the challenging field of free immigration advice provision. 

Mental Health First Aid Report

Starting in late 2022, RMC began delivering Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) workshops with the aim of delivering to 100 people. Over the next 6 months, 12 training sessions were delivered to the community and created a network of Mental Health First Aiders.

Two Years of Litigation Report

May 2022 marked two years of RMC representing immigration and asylum cases before the First-tier and Upper Tribunal. In April 2020 we took the decision to raise our level of authorisation, which enabled us to expand our services and support vulnerable clients in legally complex appeals before the Tribunals.
