Contacts

Last update : November 2014

There are several specialised groups and NGOs for legal advice on asylum. Some necessary contacts in UK you may find here.


Home Office (government) will try to make things quite difficult for you, unless you are given asylum, but there are lots of people and organisations who want to help refugees. Here are just a few organisations you can call if you need help. You may be able to use a computer for free in libraries to find out more…

You can find a list of lawyers who may be able to help you here:
