Project Description

Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network (LASSN) is a registered charity set up in 1999 to respond to the pressing unmet needs of refugees and asylum seekers living in Leeds. Most of whom experience acute isolation, mental health issues, language difficulties and immense uncertainty over their asylum claim. LASSN helps more than 260 volunteers to support around 600 asylum seekers and refugees and their children each year. They also provide destitute asylum seekers with the emergency financial support and accommodation they need to survive over the winter months.
