Help for asylum seekers and refugees

Borderlands offers a safe place through a Drop-In Service where people can to find a way back into society. Through community, hot food, activities and English and maths classes, we help for asylum seekers and refugees overcome the isolation and exclusion.

The mentoring project looks to partner people with refugees or asylum seekers to provide practical and emotional support. Through regular meetings, the mentor provides support with whatever is needed at that time. This can cover a range of activities, from registering with a GP, improving their English or finding local places of worship. Beyond practical support, these one-to-one meetings look to create safe and trusting relationships and help tackle isolation.

The housing project is one house that provides a stable home for refugees who have recently received their status, for 6 months to support them to become self-sufficient.
