Our aims

The Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants works to create a strong, positive, community for people who have been displaced from their countries of origin due to persecution, war, and poverty.

We create a sense of belonging and comfort for those who have left their homes. We provide practical tools and structure to help displaced people to rebuild their lives. We link asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants with local people to build a stronger community for everyone.

The change we want to see

We work to ensure positive, sustainable change for asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants.

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). 

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.
