This is a cross sector forum for any group or organisation that has provision for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Lewisham and for refugees and migrants themselves. The purpose of the forum is to increase partnership working in order to better meet the needs of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Lewisham. We will do this by: building closer working relationships and raising awareness about what services are available for cross referrals; identifying needs and areas of improvement in services; sharing intelligence on strategy and policy.

In September, several local organisations and members of Lewisham Council working closely with refugees came together and agreed now is a good time to start up a mirgrant forum. Lewisham Council has made a pledge to resettle 100 refugee families over the next four years and there is an ever growing demand on resources to provide the support that refugees need. There is already a lot of partnership working going on but we want to provide a space to build on this so that refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Lewisham receive the best possible support.
