Kent Refugee Help supports refugees and migrants held in London and Kent prisons. We help people access legal advice and representation to fight their case and stand with them throughout. After release we continue to help in other ways – signposting to services in the area where they are living, supporting them and providing small cash sums for emergencies. We offer telephone legal advice for immigration via an advice line, which is open two days a week, and also one to one immigration legal advice either by visiting the prison or by video link. We are regulated to give immigration legal advice and representation by the OISC. Please see our leaflet here.
Our support continues after release if requested. We welcome the involvement of refugees and migrants in our organisation; their ideas and experiences are crucial to informing and developing our policy.
Please also contact us if you are interested in volunteering, donating money or have an interest in refugee rights.
