As part of the Frontline Network Shadowing Fund, InterAction visited Bristol Refugee Rights, to see what lessons could be learned from another organisation supporting asylum seekers and refugees.
The team came away full of ideas on how to develop their own InterAction drop-ins, which have been running since May 2019.
The team were really impressed with what they saw in Bristol and are going to implement the wrap-around team meetings before and after each Drop-in session with the volunteers.
The Action Foundation team will consider translating registration forms into five different languages and setting up a computerised sign-in and registration system.
They will also consider running casework and advice services, in addition to providing haircuts and lunch services.
This trip was made possible thanks to funding from St Martin in the Fields Frontline Charity ‘Shadow Fund’.
