Visit to Asylum Justice – 24 August 2016
On Monday I took the opportunity to meet the volunteers behind Asylum Justice at their weekly drop-in advice session. This was a chance to see the fantastic work they carry out first hand.
Asylum Justice is a charity which provides free legal advice to asylum seekers. They rely largely on donations and the work of their volunteers. Their weekly drop-in sessions provide an opportunity for asylum seekers to get free advice from qualified lawyers about their case. This provides real practical help for asylum seekers.
It was great to be able to see the important work carried out by the volunteers and meet some of these dedicated individuals who gave me more insight into the work they do there. Just as importantly I had the chance to talk to some of the people who were there seeking advice, who have been helped by the work done by Asylum Justice.
I was happy to present them with a cheque for £325 in order to help them in their work. This money was raised from generous sponsorship of the London Legal Walk which took place earlier this year. I am hopeful that this donation will help Asylum Justice in their crucial work.
Asylum Justice relies heavily upon donations and they are currently busy fundraising hard. They provide a vitally important service to the local community and have helped a huge number of people.
If you would like to donate to Asylum Justice then please go to their website http://asylumjustice.org.uk/.
If you would like to attend one of the drop-in sessions they take place every Monday from 6pm to 8.30pm.
