This national organisation is staffed purely by volunteers and pro bono support. It provides FREE specialist legal representation to LGBT people who have fled their country because they have suffered persecution for loving someone of the same sex. No Going Back is the only organisation in the UK who offers this service. The organisation also puts on awareness-raising events and training regarding LGBT asylum.
