Refugees Call for Change is one of the regular refugee-led activities that run to complement JRS UK’s Day Centre. The group offers an open space for refugee friends of JRS UK to gather and discuss openly the problems and experiences they are facing within the UK’s asylum system. It is also a space just to listen and gain some advice from one another. One of the group’s main aims is for their voices to be heard so that others can have an idea about what life is like as an asylum seeker in the UK.
The group regularly publish blogs and articles on the JRS UK website and elsewhere.
