LASSN Projects

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.

Volunteer Befrienders build trust by forging a relationship through 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 the stress caused by both past trauma and the asylum process.

Refugees and other migrants sometimes struggle to find work in the UK. Mentoring and Befriending offers people who are thinking about work the chance to build their confidence, improve their English, and to make contacts and friends in their local community, finding out about the help and services available to them.

English at Home helps people learn a skill that is vital for their everyday life. We support asylum seekers and refugees who can’t access mainstream ESOL classes because of caring responsibilities, difficulties with transport or other reasons. Tutors provide one to one lessons so that students can become more independent and confident on paper and in person.
