AFRIL provides a number of services to support vulnerable asylum seekers, migrants and refugees. We have three core services: the Rainbow Club supplementary school; the Helping Hands Foodbank; and the Advice and Advocacy Service. We also run a number of arts-based wellbeing projects, an Allotment of Refuge, and an immigration advice project in partnership with Southwark Law Centre.
Since AFRIL was founded in 2006, we have made a real difference to the lives of hundreds of asylum seekers, refugees, and vulnerable migrants. Our work enables service users to meet their crisis needs, resolve complex problems, and develop the skills and knowledge they need to meaningfully integrate into the community. Find out more here.
AFRIL is a tiny charity: we would not be able to support the most vulnerable members of our community without your help. We rely on donations and grants - but you can support our work in other ways. We need donations in kind for our foodbank, volunteers across all of our projects, and support to raise awareness of the issues our service users face. Find out more about ways to support our work.
We are now recruiting someone to lead and coordinate our enthusiastic allotment gardening team. For more info see below: Vacancies
