Praxis Community Projects


Accessing Health Services

We provide advice on family reunion, access to health services and a series of workshops providing health information and opportunities to improve social networks.

Doris’s story

Doris, from Tanzania, was granted leave to remain in the UK after many long and difficult years of insecure immigration status. Praxis gave her advice and guidance on how she could bring her orphaned niece and nephew to the UK.

Doris had experienced many traumatic events including the premature death of her sister and the murder of her 13-year-old son. Doris had not been able to deal with the grief of these events while her immigration issues were ongoing, but once she had secure status she felt the need for counselling. We were able to refer her to a specialist mother-tongue counselling service.


Christine’s story

Christine came to Praxis for advice on various issues relating to her immigration status. She was referred to our Reaching Communities Workshops where she was given information on a range of issues including nutrition, child protection and human rights. She took part in music workshops run in partnership with Sanctuary Voices and sang in a show, The Secret Consul. Following consultation with others in the Reaching Communities group she proposed setting up a sewing and craft group and has been supported to do so by Praxis.
