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.
