This video, made by In Her Shoes, features some of our amazing clients (and staff!). Made to raise awareness, and raise the spirits, but also to raise money for our hardship fund, every penny of which goes directly to our most vulnerable clients for food, utilities and other essentials.

We work to alleviate destitution caused by immigration issues. Many of our clients have no access to Public Funds, some are homeless and where people have support it is minimal. For all of them, the underlying cause of this vulnerability is issues around their immigration status. Our clients often live in poor housing conditions, are without resources, have associated health conditions, and are extremely vulnerable.


ASIRT's specialist immigration advisers work on the core issue of regularising status, whilst ensuring that are clients are accessing all the support they are entitled to. Making sure people have a roof over their head and food on the table is a primary concern, particularly for our families. We advocate with schools, landlords, childrens services and other providers, and apply for funding for our clients' basic needs.
