Update on FRU's response to Coronavirus

Our position has changed since our last update. Our staff are mainly working at home and we are supporting our volunteers remotely as far as possible. Our staff will only be in the FRU office if required for a specific reason, for example to assist a volunteer with case preparation or to collect the post.

  • If you are a FRU volunteer with an existing case and need to speak to us please contact the legal officer who has been supporting you or contact us on admin@thefru.org.uk. Please let us know in advance if you believe that you need to come into the office.
  • If you are a volunteer who doesn't have a current case we aren't signing out new cases until at least 26 March. We will review the position before that date and write to all volunteers to update them. In the meantime please don't call at the office.
  • If you are from a referral agency and need to speak to us please use the webform or call on 020 7611 9555. We are currently only accepting referrals for cases listed after 10 April 2020.
  • If you are an existing client then keep in contact with your representative and you can contact us on admin@thefru.org.uk or on 020 7611 9555.
  • If you would like your case to be referred to FRU please read our 'Need Help' page and please note that we can't represent you if your hearing is being held before 10 April 2020.
