Our Community Connections project supports people of all ages to develop their own knowledge and skills while increasing the resilience and capacity of their communities. We offer supported volunteering opportunities as well as practical work experience and  training and development. The people we work bring a wealth of knowledge and skills with them to the UK and have the potential to make a hugely positive contribution to their local community. This project is about helping them to do it! Our Community Connections project is funded by The Big Lottery. 



Our history

South London Refugee Association is a registered charity which was established in 1991. We run a range of projects which promote the inclusion of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in South London.

Most of our clients come from countries affected by political conflict and instability; many of them are destitute. Our clients include young people who have experienced trauma and have arrived alone and disorientated in London, families who are trying to navigate the UK's complex asylum process and others who have been trafficked to the UK. Legal aid cuts and the closure of many other services has left many with no recourse to the services they most need. We fill the gaps in service provision and go the extra mile to make a positive difference to people's lives.

In 2015 SLRA's opened a new office in Lambeth and now has bases in Merton and Lambeth with established services running in these two boroughs as well as in Wandsworth and Croydon.


There are lots of opportunities to join our great volunteer team.
