Asylum Guides

Delivering a new project in partnership with Refugee Action.

We are proud to be the first organisation working with the Refugee Action’s national scaling programme to deliver ‘Asylum Guides’.


The project aims to increase legal literacy, empowering people to be able to navigate and better engage with the complex asylum system. The Asylum Guides will provide information and guidance to asylum seekers on key stages of the asylum process who are living in Sandwell and west Birmingham.

Individuals wanting an asylum guide will be matched with our trained volunteers who will meet with them at key stages of the asylum process. We will also be able to take referrals from other organisations for asylum seekers who live in Sandwell and West Birmingham and would benefit from an Asylum Guide.

For further information on the asylum guides project see  -

Asylum Guides will receive in depth training, resources to deliver your sessions with your match and ongoing support from our Outreach Coordinator. If you would like to volunteer to become an Asylum Guide or for more information please contact Abqa either via email at: or phone at 07833 439559.
