Our asylum related activities include:
• Supporting LGBT asylum seekers: providing support & information via our helpline and in person; referring to solicitors; organising a monthly support meeting; visiting detention centres and running other social support projects.
• Research & Policy: monitoring and researching relevant (legal) developments and issues; researching human rights in countries of origin; working to ensure LGBT people are treated equally and with dignity in the asylum process; seeking to improve the quality of UKBA decision making, and networking with organisations and individuals working on related issues in UK and internationally.
• Training & Information: providing training and information on LGBT asylum issues to relevant service providers in the refugee and LGBT community, solicitors and other legal advisers, UKBA staff and the judiciary.
• We also continue our same-sex partner immigration work by providing support and information via our website, an online forum and a monthly meeting, as well as monitoring legal and policy developments and responding to these as and when required.
