Mission, Vision, and Values

We support asylum seekers, vulnerable migrants, and refugees in Lewisham and south east London to overcome their complex problems and integrate into the community. We empower service users to build purposeful lives in the UK.

AFRIL supports asylum seekers, vulnerable migrants and refugees in south London to overcome their complex problems and meaningfully integrate into the community. Empowering and listening to our service users is at the heart of our work.

At AFRIL, we:

  • Work with service users to develop services and support that meets their real, and not perceived needs
  • Work collaboratively with local and national organisations to ensure that services are relevant, appropriate, and effective
  • Work with service users to enable them to build their knowledge, confidence, and skills

Our work is grounded in our values of professionalism, inclusivity, and solidarity. We strive to be community-led, and community-based
