Who We Are

Many refugees and asylum seekers will experience homelessness at some point. The Grace Hosting project supports people in this situation. Grace Hosting volunteers provide a hot meal and a safe place to sleep for people who have nowhere else to turn.


English at Home helps people learn a skill that is vital for their everyday life. We support refugees and asylum seekers who, for reasons of caring, disability or gender, are unable to attend classes. Our project develops students’ language skills so that they can cope with everyday life and become empowered.


Volunteer Befrienders build trust by forging a relationship through by meeting up for a few hours each week for at least six months. Asylum seekers and refugees typically need help with settling in Leeds, integrating into the local community, accessing services and overcoming emotional stress caused by past trauma and the asylum process.

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.
