Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network
What we do
Our vision is to have a fair, just and equal society where people can live in harmony.
Our mission is to empower refugees and migrants to thrive, make a positive contribution, integrate and take control of their own lives.
We do this by:
Providing free and independent expert advice and casework
Supporting integration via community projects
Offering counselling, therapy and advocacy for women survivors of gender-based violence
Conducting research and sharing information
Campaigning to affect policy changes at the local and national level
Our experienced and specialist advisers support those most vulnerable in regularising their immigration status, improving their housing situation, preventing homelessness, accessing welfare entitlements, gaining employment and improving their mental health and well-being.
We also campaign to ensure that the voices of these communities are heard, and their rights upheld.
Although based in Lewisham, our projects and services are open to people from all over London.
