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.
