Praxis Community Projects

Praxis Community Projects based in East London, provides specialist, pan-London services for migrants at-risk. We have over 30 years’ experience of working with migrant communities and support over 1800 people a year. We provide specialist advice and holistic support to address the needs of at-risk migrants including refugees, asylum seekers, survivors of human trafficking and gender-based violence, homeless migrants and their families, and those excluded from public funds facing destitution.

Founded 1983

  • Mission statement

    Our vision is: a world where people are not defined by their immigration status or by the struggles they face; a world where people who have migrated are treated with dignity and respect, are able to live in safety and take control of their own destinies.

    Our core purpose is to provide practical, legal and emotional support for migrants in crisis or at-risk, ensuring that their essential human needs are met, and that they are able to overcome the barriers they face. We build community, challenge exclusion and discrimination, influence policy, improve services and inspire solidarity with migrants.

  • Aims

    Praxis Community Projects aims to:

    • Migrants at-risk are able to access services which recognise their human rights and needs.
    • Destitute migrants are able to access safe accommodation and support.
    • The challenges faced by undocumented, destitute migrants and those with uncertain immigration status, are more widely understood.
    • Service users find resilience, voice and a sense of belonging.
