Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network (LASSN) is a registered charity set up in 1999 to respond to the pressing unmet needs of refugees and asylum seekers living in Leeds. Most of whom experience acute isolation, mental health issues, language difficulties and immense uncertainty over their asylum claim.

LASSN involves over 200 volunteers providing one to one support to around 700 asylum seekers and refugees and their children. We also provide destitute asylum seekers with the emergency financial support and accommodation they need to survive over the winter months.
