RMJ’s final release: Refugee and Migrant Justice is saddened to announced that a last-minute rescue plan to save the organisation has not succeeded.
After launching an emergency appeal for funds, £76,525 was pledged by members of the public within a 24 hour period and a number of charitable trusts and organisations offered significant support. However, talks with the Legal Services Commission, RMJ’s main funder, were unsuccessful.
The administrators BDO are now in the process of winding down the organisation.
People who kindly pledged money to RMJ are being informed and their money will be returned.
Caroline Slocock, chief executive of Refugee and Migrant Justice said:
During this period, RMJ has received the most amazing support from supporters and we were overwhelmed and touched by the offers of financial help in response to our campaign. We would like to thank everyone who has tried to save RMJ and very much regret that it has not been possible.
