Afro Innovation Group is one of the leading charities in Leicester working directly with refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants. Our aim is to empower our beneficiaries so they can access essential services in the UK, move into sustainable employment, and become an integral part of Leicester’s thriving multicultural community.
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 also 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.
