LJS Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families

Category: Collectathon

Since 2014, the Liberal Jewish Synagogue’s Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families has welcomed families who are applying for asylum in the UK.

Many of their guests have risked their lives to escape torture, war and persecution. Unfortunately, once in the UK, their fight is not over as they navigate a notoriously complex, and often lengthy asylum process, whilst finding themselves on the margins of society, with the constant threat of detention and deportation hanging over them.

By Summer 2017, the LJS had welcomed over 400 adults and 500 children seeking asylum from over 30 countries. 

The Project

The LJS drop in runs monthly, and if you would like to get involved in this all year round. Please contact LJS.
