Through our work we dismantle the health and wellbeing inequalities people seeking sanctuary face
It is well documented that people seeking sanctuary face multiple health inequalities.
In 2020, Public Health England found that structural racism and discrimination contributed to the higher death rates during the pandemic seen in Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
But these inequalities have been here long before the pandemic. People seeking sanctuary are more likely to experience stress and poor mental health and wellbeing due to the trauma they have experienced and the uncertainty they face during the asylum process.
Our work aims to redress the balance and create more equitable opportunities for the people we work with.
