Leon's story

I arrived in the UK in 2008. Two years after I first applied for asylum I got an initial refusal...I was destitute.

ASSIST wouldn’t exist without its community of supporters

ASSIST Sheffield works with people who are seeking sanctuary and who have been refused asylum. We provide accommodation, information and other support. We're a charity and we rely on volunteers, grants and the generosity of the people of Sheffield and the surrounding area.
