Asylum Link Merseyside
Asylum Link is an organisation dedicated to assisting Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Liverpool and to raising public awareness around refugee issues.
It is a welcoming and safe place for people from all countries to meet, relax and find out about the city they have arrived in.
What does ALM offer?
Asylum Link provides friendship, help and advice and encourages the participation of asylum seekers and refugees in the service. It offers a wide range of services for asylum seekers and refugees. Most services are provided on a drop in basis, with appointments available for specialist activities.
Every day, tea, coffee and biscuits are available during opening hours in the kitchen area. Lunch is served most days to everyone.
Social activities are available each day and trips and special activities at intervals.
The day to day running of the centre is managed by 4 full time and 3 part time staff, and over 100 volunteers, overseen by a Board of 11 Trustees.
Visitors are always welcome at ALM but please contact us first.
Peter from Asylum Link came to speak to staff during an INSET day.
He talked to us about some of the stories and journeys that refugee and asylum seeker families have to go through.
Staff were visibly moved and we now have staff who have offered to help in the allotments, donate clothes and arrange food bank donations.
We have also been able to signpost parents to Asylum Link for support and advice.
This is a link that will become stronger next year.
We donated £50 from our School Fair money to help support the work that Asylum Link do with Refugee families.
