Praxis Community Projects

We are a vibrant, cutting edge human rights charity that supports migrants and refugees, including some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in society, locally and pan-London, including programmes with national impact.

We have over thirty years’ experience of working with vulnerable migrants in London. Our approach is solutions-focused and practical, and we are committed to working with refugees and migrants as active partners to advocate for their own needs, develop their leaders

Founded 1983

  • Mission statement

    Praxis as a vision of a world where people are no longer forced to move but are able to do so for mutual enrichment.
    Because we believe that transformation is possible even within experiences of conflict and displacement, our purpose is:
    To be with displaced communities, listening and acting through our common humanity to create and nurture reconciliation, human rights and social justice.

  • Aims

    • to advance the education and relieve the poverty, sickness and distress of members of the public, particularly refugees, migrants and asylum seekers

    • to advance the education of the public, through the provision of art and drama workshops and other similar cultural and educational activities.
