We at London Advocacy write to you seeking your assistance for the program that support the advocacy, advice, educational needs and wellbeing of asylum-seekers, refugees and immigrants in the UK. Given that you have been generously supporting the provision of facilities and assistance to enhance the education and wellbeing of asylum-seekers, refugees and immigrants, we hope that our program catches your attention and that you will consider funding it.
London Advocacy Group was established in 2016 by Lawyers, Journalists and Academics who are also asylum-seekers and immigrants. We aim to encourage the social integration of refugees and immigrants within the society they live in; improve their educational performance and help them gain valuable skills and qualifications that will appeal to employers and their communities. We provide advice and guidance to those struggling to navigate the complex immigration system as well as strategic consultancy to small businesses. Our services include training programs, community information events, educational seminars and holiday programmes for asylum seekers.
The Covid-19 pandemic has worsened the situation for asylum-seekers, refugees and immigrants in terms of inequality and life chances, resulting in an increase in social and economic inactivity. This inequality gap negatively affects individual life chances that endure, imposing a high cost on them, society, and our economy. We urgently need to address these obstacles that prevent asylum-seekers, refugees, and immigrants from becoming economically active members of their communities and, in turn, from leading a fulfilling and self-governed life.
We are, therefore, requesting funding for our Immigrant Integration and Assistance Program, which comprising different activities such as 1 to 1 Personalized Support, Online Workshops and Translation Services. We have been successful at improving the life prospects of asylum-seekers, refugees and immigrants. We are committed to benefiting even more people in this way.
I understand that you are inundated with requests and have therefore kept this proposal brief, however further information is detailed below. We would gratefully receive any contribution you can make towards our financial requirements, and we hope that this request will be met with support and consideration
