An Introduction to LASSN

If you’re here, you probably already know something about LASSN. But here’s a quick presentation (written for a presentation at Allerton Deanery Synod) that links what we do to the wider local, national and international context of people seeking refuge and asylum

Volunteer wanted to help with on-line database

For many years LASSN has produced a Directory of Services in Leeds for Asylum Seekers and refugees – see Directory

We’d like to turn the directory into an online resource. Having  updated our website to use WordPres we now have the capabilities we need. The problem is that we need someone with the know-how to transform the directory from the old paper/Access Database version into a searchable/printable online directory.

If you can help with this then please get in touch.

Great sources of information to help asylum seekers

Immigration Law Practitioner’s Association On this page you will find the most recent Update and most recent Information Sheets provided by ILPA’s Information Service.  The Service provides information of interest in immigration, asylum and nationality law, policy and practice, and is designed for non-lawyers (although many lawyers also use the information).  Updates set out on one page a very short note of recent developments.  Information Sheets set out on two pages some more detailed information on a specific issue.

Asylum Support Appeals Project – fact-sheets covering topics such as Section 95, Section 4, and pregnant asylum seekers
