NNLS Destitute Asylum Seekers Drop in

The Drop in supports destitute asylum seekers and their children. Our volunteers offer legal signposting, appointments with doctors, nutritious cooked food and a welcoming, warm and friendly space. Every client also receives a supermarket voucher and travel expenses.

We set up the Drop in because we became aware of the desperate needs of destitute asylum seekers, many of whom go hungry and survive predominantly on the kindness of friends.

A large number of our clients are survivors of torture and/or rape and fear for their lives if they are returned home.

The project launched in March 2006 with just one asylum seeker attending – today we welcome people from more than 60 different countries from across London, and the project is run almost entirely by volunteers.

The Drop in is a registered charity no. 1177599
