In 2014, we were granted funding from the Big Lottery for the purpose of seeing refugees and asylum seekers across London. This project is a continuation of the work offered by the Mapesbury Clinic in the Minster Centre. Please click here to read more about MECS North West.
Advising London deals specifically with practical issues, e.g. housing, immigration, education. If the counsellor feels that their client may benefit from these services, they will make a referral to the organisation. Advising London will contact the client directly to arrange an appointment.
Thanks to our long-standing agreement with the Oasis Food Bank in Waterloo, we are able to provide food vouchers to clients that may not be able to afford necessary supplies.

The Multi-Ethnic Health Access Project is a partnership between our Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service and the Health Inclusion Team (Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham) who offer regular appointments. The partnership aims to improve the health and quality of life for asylum seekers and refugees living in the London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham by providing health access advice. They also provide advice and information on social issues requiring referrals to solicitors, and to community organisations or day centres which promote social integration, besides guidance on how to deal with social issues affecting their health.
