We provide immigration support, ensuring that our clients can access whatever they are entitled to, whilst we try and regularise their immigration status. We are a team of eight staff members, and occasional volunteers, and social work students on placement. A lot of the unrestricted funding that we raise goes into our hardship fund, which is composed of small grants that we give out to clients who are in immediate financial need for things like food, nappies, electricity etc.
As well as immigration advisers, we also employ a children's worker, who provides activities and support around things like access to schools etc. Many of our clients have no recourse to public funds, and are living in very vulnerable circumstances.
It makes a real difference to organisations like ASIRT to get support from the community. Thank you very much
We’ll be writing more about ASIRT soon in this newsletter. If you’d like to make a donation, you can do so with your online pre-order or at the counter.
And if you have a suggestion for next quarter's charity, please let us know!
