Please Support FRU

As a charity, FRU offers its services to the public completely free of charge. We rely on donations to enable us to fulfil our charitable objectives. Any donations to FRU are always gratefully received.


Please help FRU raise £12000 to buy new computers!

FRU’s work runs off computers and phones. Volunteers need them to do their legal research, draft their witness statements and communicate with the Tribunal and their clients. Staff need them to keep the office running smoothly!

We urgently need new computers and IT infrastructure to prevent the whole system from crashing down around us.

We are aiming to raise £12000 to provide us with 19 new computers, a Windows Server 2012 (which also hosts our phone lines!!) and Office 2013 licenses. Every £10 helps us reach our goal of £12000.
Please donate today so we can continue to help our clients and support our volunteers in their excellent work.


A regular or one off donation however small makes a real difference and will enable us to continue to offer free legal assistance to people who need our services.

  • £5 a month helps towards the costs of essential office supplies, ensuring that our office remains functioning to assist vulnerable applicants.
  • £25 a month helps to provide ongoing IT provisions and office space for our volunteers, so they can carry out their work. 
  • £50 a month helps towards the cost of employing two principle legal officers and two assistant legal officers essential for the efficient processing of the 1,000 cases we help annually.
