Bradford Ecumenical Asylum Concern

BEACON has three projects which address the injustices in the asylum system. Our Hosting Project offers accommodation in volunteer households to destitute asylum seekers who have been refused Leave to Remain: our guests cannot return to their home countries and yet they are unable to claim any benefits or work to support themselves. Our McKenzie Friends volunteers support refused asylum seekers without access to legal aid: accompanying them to appeal hearings and supporting them to gather new evidence. Our CHAT Phoenix House Project offers a friendly face and a listening ear to those waiting for their appeal to be heard at the Tribunal Centre in Thornbury, and our CHAT English Conversation Club helps non-native speakers gain confidence and combats isolation experienced by many in the asylum system.
