About Us

 

 

Praxis Community Projects is committed to working with vulnerable migrants. We are deeply concerned for the safety and well being of refugees, asylum seekers, refused asylum seekers, people with limited or no recourse to public funds as a result of their immigration status, young unaccompanied asylum seekers, victims of human trafficking, foreign national offenders and others who find it difficult to settle in the UK.

Founded in 1983 through a legacy of the late Robert Kemble, Praxis has worked with people from some of the world's most dangerous and troubled locations including Latin America, Francophone Africa, the Horn of Africa and the Middle East.

Praxis operates a walk in advice service and operates projects which seek to address the fundamental human rights of new migrants.
 

Our vision

Our vision is for a society that welcomes displaced people and migrants, respects their human rights, enables them to live in dignity and make a contribution to the economic, social and cultural life of the UK.

Our core purpose

Our core purpose is to provide help and support for newly arrived and long- settled migrants to ensure that they are able to live in safety, meet their essential human needs and overcome the barriers they face to integrate, develop and thrive in the UK. We seek to challenge exclusion, build solidarity and improve policy and service provision by drawing on the lived experience of migrants and by supporting migrant communities for their voices to be heard.
 

Our motivation

We are motivated by a sense of solidarity with our fellow human beings - whatever their immigration status or background - and a desire for social justice.
