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.
Praxis has a vision of a world where people are no longer forced to move but are able to do so for mutual enrichment.
Our mission is to be with displaced communities, listening and acting through our common humanity to create and nurture reconciliation, human rights and social justice.
Facilitating new relationships which have the potential to transform conflict, exploitation and injustice
Acting with integrity
Innovating the right response in changing times
Building solidarity within and between communities
Respecting and enhancing the dignity of people who are displaced
What we aim to do in the period 2012-2014
Amplify the voice of new communities so that they are actively engaged in decisions that affect their lives
Create resilient communities that withstand and overcome disadvantage, discrimination and exploitation
How Praxis will do it
In order to respond to a rapidly changing situation for community members, Praxis will both focus on the most vulnerable of migrants and expand some of its services with a social enterprise model
Praxis Community Projects
The core service is our walk in advice services and group activities which accompany it. We also run projects which aim to address the fundamental human rights of migrants: livelihood, shelter and safety and health, family and social life.
Praxis offers a bespoke interpreting service and is developing new services for the teaching of English Language.
