Unity Group Wales

This organisation is based in Swansea, and works with the LGBT community
across Wales.  It provides advice and support, raises awareness, and
provides assistance around hate crime.

Over the past few years, Unity Group had been seeing increasing numbers
of LGBT asylum seekers coming to the centre in Swansea for support.  In
response, it set up a dedicated group called ‘No Going Back’, which now
meets regularly.  The Foundation awarded £3,500 towards the volunteer
costs, and general running costs of this group.  Volunteers help with
practical assistance, access to immigration legal advisors, social and
cultural support, and regular drop-in sessions.  The intention is to
help asylum seekers as they move through the asylum system, improve
people’s wellbeing and mental health, and help people integrate into the
community
