WELCOME TO ASYLUM LINK MERSEYSIDE

As we slowly begin to open the centre over the coming weeks, all visits are by invitation or prior arrangement. There are no drop-in services running at present. The best way to find out what’s on is to phone 0151 709 1713 or email info@asylumlink.org.uk

Thoughts on the new asylum proposals, by the people they affect and who were never consulted on them. 

 

 

In light of the new draconian Government proposals for changes in the Immigration System, we have added a New Immigration page containing details of the changes and how to respond to them.

 
We have recently set up a fund to commemorate the work of Brother Eamonn Doyle called Eamonn’s Days Out – this is a link to the page for those who want to give or to find out more about his life. 
 
Whatever the arguments about who gets the vaccine first and why, one thing is beyond doubt, that it affects people from minority backgrounds far more severely than others. In the main, this is the client group ALM work with.
Key to getting the vaccine is having an NHS number, and to obtain this people would normally register with a GP, (which is a good idea anyway.)
 
So when the time comes to get vaccinated, make sure you have an NHS number. Sort it out now! If you don’t know your local GP or what is available, you could contact the Social Inclusion Team for advice or use the GP finder service
 
 

14 April 2021 – As lockdown restrictions ease we are able to accept any items of shoes or clothing. These can be dropped off on a Wednesday or Thursday as there are more people in the centre (Overbury Street) on these days.

For any other type of donation it is better if you call ahead and check whether we are accepting those items 709 1713 or info@asylumlink.org.uk

Asylum Link is an organisation dedicated to assisting Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Liverpool and to raising public awareness around refugee issues. It is a welcoming and safe place for people from all countries to meet, relax and find out about the city they have arrived in.

Asylum Link provides friendship, help and advice and encourages the participation of asylum seekers and refugees in the service.  ALM needs your help to do this and we currently have an appeal in place for extra funding.

What does ALM offer?

We offer a wide range of services for asylum seekers and refugees. Most services are provided on a drop in basis, with appointments available for specialist activities.

Every day, tea, coffee and biscuits are available during opening hours in the kitchen area. Lunch is served most days to everyone.

Social activities are available each day and trips and special activities at intervals. The day to day running of the centre is managed by 4 full time and 3 part time staff, and over 100 volunteers, overseen by a Board of 11 Trustees – more
