Our drop-in Advice Service was developed in response to the many and complex problems experienced by asylum seekers and refugees as they adapt to life in the UK. We now offer advice covering an extensive range of issues, with a particular emphasis on employment and health for both our more settled clients and those newly arrived in Suffolk.
The service is delivered by experienced Advice Workers assisted by a team of volunteers. We have built strong relationships with many local external support agencies to ensure that we provide a professional and cohesive service.
Please note, currently our office is open for appointments only during the hours above, but we also offer a full telephone advice service. To make an appointment or for advice by telephone, please call 01473 400785.
We are open to all asylum seekers, refugees and their families. We aim to provide good quality independent advice. No matter what the problem, we will try our best to resolve it. If for whatever reason we are unable to help a client find a solution, we will refer them to the appropriate external agency for assistance.
Between March 2019 and February 2020 we delivered more than 5693 individual advice sessions to 602 clients from 42 countries.
