The AIRE Centre is an award-winning access to justice NGO based in Central London. Our impact is wide and felt by thousands of people who have benefited from our robust defence of the rule of law, and specifically our legal representation and interventions in both the domestic UK and European Courts.

In its 25th year, the AIRE Centre's remit is more relevant than ever, that is, to raise awareness of European legal rights and assist marginalised individuals and those in vulnerable circumstances to assert those rights. We do this by:

  • Taking cases to the European Court of Human Rights, the European Court of Justice, and UK Higher Courts
  • Providing legal advice to other lawyers and advisers in the voluntary sector
  • Providing legal advice to individuals directly and providing representation in Immigration and Social Security Tribunals 
  • Carrying out training and drafting reports and other publications.

To fulfil these objectives AIRE undertakes research, policy initiatives, casework and training across European and International law areas. Our work is carried out by a small but committed group of staff and volunteers, supported by an expert Board of Trustees.  We are seeking applicants with expertise in the following areas:

  • Fundraising and Communications
  • Organisational development

If you think you could bring something to the board table to enhance our work, through a combination of skills, experience or contacts, please read further details on the role in the enclosed trustee information pack.
