Refugee Support launches research into disabled refugees and asylum seekers in London
(Source: Migrant Rights Newsletter September 2008)
Refugee Support, the refugee arm of the Metropolitan Support Trust, has recently commissioned research into how refugee community and mainstream organisations assist and support disabled refugees and asylum-seekers in London. The objectives of the research are to: map existing work; assess unmet need; identify barriers to accessing services, explore the concepts of disability and address the shortfalls in service provision. Research findings will be available in November and released at a dissemination event at City Hall in London. For more information about this research contact Charlotte Keeble, Research and Consultancy Manager on 020 7501 2214.
