Geographical remit: 



Merseyside Refugee & Asylum Seekers Pre & Post Natal Support Group (MRANG) was established in 2004 to meet the unaddressed needs of pre and post natal refugees and asylum seekers in the Merseyside area, particularly those who were pregnant or had children as a result of rape. Since then the organisation has expanded and we now work extensively with women refugees and asylum seekers and their children, including victims of trafficking, sexual violence, domestic servitude, other forms of gender based violence and human rights abuses.

Any woman who is an asylum seeker or refugee in the Merseyside area can access our services. We aim to support our service users in a practical holistic way, working in a non judgemental manner and respecting each individual’s uniqueness and diversity.



MRANG works with female asylum seekers and refugees and their children. Our work is carried out through the following projects: drop-in project, casework project, accompaniment project, recycling project. 


Drop-in Project

Our drop-in project aims to provide a safe and supportive space for women and their children, where they can access peer support and develop social contacts and friendship. At the drop-in we provide a warm, nutritious meal enjoyed in the company of other women and their children. Women can access the following: emotional support, casework support, pre and post natal support, parental support and advice, clothes and toys for babies, children and women, structured play and learning activities for the children ,peer support and the opportunity to develop social contacts, therapeutic activities such as massage and beauty therapy, English classes and outreach services from specialist services


Casework Project

MRANG’s caseworkers provide comprehensive casework support to women, including support through the asylum process, the ‘move on’ period for those who receive status, help with housing, healthcare, education and other areas as needed by service users. Casework is primarily provided through the drop-in with ongoing follow-up work carried out at MRANG’s office and through home visits and further means of support. Women receive casework for as a long as they need it and to the extent they require.
