Good Practice and Partnerships

Rapid sector response to COVID-19

Our blog detailing the fast response to the impacts of the coronavirus crisis from organisations that support refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK.

Based on conversations with 40 partner organisations between 16 March and 16 April 2020, we outline the five biggest issues identified by experts in providing support. They range from increased destitution to effective communication and shifting to remote services.

The Asylum Good Practice and Partnerships team works to fulfil Refugee Action’s Vision by working to strengthen organisations working with people seeking asylum and refugees.

We do this through facilitating collaboration and innovation, through the development of skills and through supporting the development of services rooted in early action and access to justice.

Collaboration and partnership building is at the heart of everything that we do.

Together we will have the biggest impact by delivering services that are:

  • Planned, proactive and targeted
  • Grounded in expert and up to date knowledge
  • Linked up and well connected locally and nationally

Through this approach, we support our partner organisations to build capacity and deliver more life changing services to refugees, migrants and people seeking asylum.

We are working closely with the Info and data Hub to assist organisations to adapt to the challenges posed by COVID 19. Please visit our new Refugee Action Good Practice Site for more information and guidance.
