David Neale, a legal researcher and former barrister for Garden Court Chambers, writes in his blog for Refugee Week about his experiences collaborating on MiCLU’s Breaking the Chains project.

Breaking the Chains was created in 2018 as a partnership between MiCLU and Shpresa Programme, a user-led organisation serving the Albanian community.

David writes: “As long as vulnerable children and young people are disbelieved for spurious reasons, refused asylum, and faced with the unenviable choice of returning to a situation of danger at home or living a marginalised existence in the UK, trafficking and other forms of exploitation will continue to thrive.”

MiCLU are immensely grateful to David and to Garden Court Chambers for their long-term support of the project.
