Providing legal representation to LGBT asylum seekers
Welcome to No Going Back
Welcome to No Going Back. We are here to help people who have fled their country as they are in fear of their lives just because of their sexual orientation. Over 70 countries have laws criminalising same-sex acts. Five of these countries have the death penalty for same-sex acts. Because of this, many people come to the UK to claim asylum so that they can be who they are without the fear of violence, prison or death.

We are here to provide support and legal representation to people who are seeking asylum in the UK because they fear persecution in their own country due to their sexual orientation. We offer them free legal advice for their asylum claims. We also commission experts to produce reports to help individual cases and to highlight problems in particular countries.

We also believe in raising the profile of the persecution that the LGBT community faces throughout the world so we run training sessions for relevant organisations.

We need your support and your participation. If you want to get involved, please consider making a donation, becoming a member or attending one of our events. If you have any comments or suggestions, please do get in touch with us.

Thank you for your support.
What we do

No Going Back was founded in 2012. We take our name from a damning report published by Stonewall.

We provide legal representation to LGBT asylum seekers, research and publish reports on the persecution of LGBT communities, and provide awareness raising training on LGBT issues.

What you can do

No Going Back receives no government funding, meaning we couldn't provide our vital services without your help.

From volunteering your time, to taking part in local fundraising events or planning your own, there are hundreds of ways to get involved with No Going Back.

Our aims

1. To make a positive difference to the lives of LGBT asylum seekers by providing legal representation.

2. To build effective networks and partnerships to support our service users.

3. To educate and develop people's understanding of the barriers LGBT asylum seekers face.
