LASSN wants asylum seekers and refugees to be

  • Supported and relieved from hardship and distress by local people
  • Empowered to rebuild their lives, to fulfil their potential and to take control of their lives
  • Integrated settled and safe. LASSN wants Leeds to be a place of  welcome and understanding; and for the general public, organisations, politicians and policy makers to understand the needs of asylum seekers


English at Home supports refugees and asylum seekers who, for reasons of caring responsibilities, health etc. are currently unable to attend classes. We develop students’ language skills so that they can cope with everyday life and become more independent.

Befriending enables refugees and asylum seekers to feel more settled in Leeds and to become part of the community.

Connecting Opportunities offers people who are thinking about work the chance to build their confidence, improve their English, and to making contacts and friends in their local community, finding out about the help and services available to them.

Grace Hosting links volunteers who have a spare room in their house, with asylum seekers and refugees who have nowhere to stay.
