Blog: Asylum Guides - Experts By Experience
Refugee Action spoke to two Asylum Guides who volunteer with Micro Rainbow as part of our Navigating Asylum Partnerships Project. They tell their own stories:
> Ericky’s Story
“It was the first time I met people like me without having to explain! They all understand what you are going through. Now I help new arrivals settle in. Sometimes you think you can’t help much, but you’d be amazed.”
> Estelle’s Story
“I used to catch the bus at 5am, travel [from London] to Glasgow to a support group, then get the bus all the way back. Then I googled support groups in London, and found Micro Rainbow.”
Human and Community Centred Design
Our partners on Explore suggested that we publish information and opportunities for organisations to use human and community centred design to improve their work. Maryhill Integration Network, Kent Refugee Action Network and Refugee Rights Hub share their design journeys.
OISC & Immigration Advisor Supervision Survey
Many organisations have been telling us that they would like support with the supervision of OISC and immigration advisors. We’d love to hear from you about how the Frontline Immigration Advice Project (FIAP) could help. 
Free Courses - Design Hops with CAST

A Design Hop teaches charity participants a step-by-step method for user-centred digital design, leading to unexpected insights, powerfully simple digital solutions and a hunger to keep tackling complex problems. The course supports non-profits on a digital journey to solve real challenges.
New £50 Million Partnership
The National Lottery Community Fund and The Ubele Initiative have announced a new £50 million partnership, aimed to boost funding and support to Black and Minoritised Community charities and grassroots groups over the next five years.
