Action for Refugees in Lewisham

Front PAge.png

AFRIL is a grassroots charity in London, working with refugees and asylum seekers to relieve poverty and social isolation.

We are a small locally run charity based in Lewisham, one of the most deprived local authority areas in England, with a very high refugee and asylum seeker population.

We work to relieve poverty and isolation amongst this vulnerable group, advance their education, and provide services to improve social integration.

Since our creation in 2006, we continue to help an average of 120 people in our local community each week - with education, family support services, and access to emergency supplies.
