The Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants (ICRM) was founded in 1997, offering English classes to asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants. We registered as a charity in 2010 (no. 1135205).
Our aims are:
- to reach all who need our support;
- to help people make positive transitions in their lives by overcoming practical barriers;
- to help people overcome language barriers preventing them integrating;
- to provide immediate relief from poverty, hunger, and other issues;
- to support people to feel connected to the community and the community to be supportive to refugees and asylum seekers.
We currently have five members of staff, 3 freelance workers, and are supported by around 30 volunteers each year. Our work is overseen by an 8 member Board of Trustees. We are funded entirely by grants and donations. We operate as a walk-in service, with all comers welcome to register with us.
You can find our annual reports here.
