Action Asylum

Welcome to Action Asylum

A project by Task Force Trust

Connecting asylum seekers with local communities, volunteering together to improve their neighbourhood and the environment

Mission Statement

Action Asylum provides opportunities for asylum seekers to volunteer alongside local people in their communities. The opportunities include improving their local neighbourhood and protecting the environment. This supports people’s well-being, encourages integration and shared learning, and demonstrates the contributions asylum seekers can make to our society.

Project Aims

  • Provide volunteering opportunities for people seeking asylum and local people, to improve the environment through conservation and community efforts
  • Promote integration and shared learning by connecting people seeking asylum to their local communities and so promote better mental health and wellbeing
  • Improve public perception of people seeking asylum
