Mission

 

The mission of Afro Innovation is to be recognised as one of the best providers of support to refugees, asylum seekers, and disadvantaged migrants in the East Midlands and as a strong contributor to the aspiration of Leicester to drive out inequalities in the cities.

Vision

Our vision is to increase public empathy for refugees, asylum seekers, and migrant protection matters in the East Midlands, exert positive influence on local authorities and public attitudes in support of the fair treatment of refugees, and deliver a range of advice, advocacy and support services that have a positive impact on the lives of our beneficiaries and that build on our role as a provider of genuinely holistic services.

About Us

We provide free and confidential advice to support people to overcome their problems, and we are a voice for asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants on the issues that matter them. We provide practical and emotional support to over 500 people every year, and every month we support approximately 5 people into employment. We deliver a range of specialist projects to support our beneficiaries, including back-to-work programmes, recreational and befriending activities, and destitution services.

We have the knowledge, background and expertise to help people rebuild their lives, and we engage with other local partners who share the goal of driving inequalities out of Leicester.

 

Every Wednesday we run a weekly drop-in service that is open to anyone who is interested in our services or wants to learn more about what we do. Grab the opportunity to join us – there is no need to register or book in advance.

 

The session is run by our staff every Wednesday from 1:00 until 2:00 PM. They include free refreshments, the opportunity to talk and socialise with others, and the opportunity to take part in a social activity such as board games or story-telling.
