Room to Heal is a healing community for asylum seekers and refugees who have suffered torture and gross human rights violations. Our mission is to use the restorative power of community to help people heal from torture and organised violence and build meaningful lives.
We provide therapeutic support groups, individual counselling/casework, and a range of creative activities including a community gardening/social project, story-telling workshops, ESOL classes and rural community building retreats. We work with people from across London from our North London base and with supporters in Devon and Norfolk. We have recently been funded by the UN to share our model internationally.
