Hopetowns aims to support the well-being and successful integration of refugees into British society, by starting at the early stage of an individual’s asylum process. We support asylum-seekers in London – including unaccompanied minors, single women and mothers – by providing concrete solutions to everyday problems intertwined with a welcoming atmosphere and emotional support.

We offer the following distinct but interlinked project components:

Language learning

and communication skills

Social events

and emotional support

Administrative support,

forms and interpretation

We have a track-record of preventing homelessness by assisting individuals with complicated housing cases, and facilitating family reunion for several refugee families in London.

Creative Writing Project

In this report, we are delighted to share with you a series of poems, short stories and memories from past, present and future. These pieces were written by the Hopetowns refugee community in North West London in Winter and Spring 2019-2020, with the kind support from the Mayor of London and the Culture Seeds grant scheme.

Please get in touch to find out more about our weekly activities for refugees and asylum seekers at our two venues in West and South London, or to volunteer, or ask any other questions.
