Charities and Social Enterprise

We have an enviable track record with helping charities to become registered sponsors of non-EEA workers, comply with their obligations as a sponsor and employer, and ensuring they are as well-placed as possible to recruit and retain the best overseas talent.

We can advise on:

  • Applications for leave to enter / remain under the Points Based System
  • Visitor visas
  • Immigration compliance obligations
  • The nexus between immigration, charity and employment law matters
  • The immigration aspects of setting up a charity in the UK
  • Sponsor licence applications

BDB is a member of the Immigration Law Practitioner’s Association and actively participates in immigration lobby groups, helping to shape government immigration policies and ensuring that we, and our clients, are up to date with the latest changes to the law.

We can also advise on the implications of Brexit.
