About Fences & Frontiers
They aim to make London a welcoming, supportive and inspiring place for refugees and asylum seekers to live in and settle.

In order to achieve this:

  • They run cultural, physical, recreational and educational activities for refugees, asylum seekers and the wider community -bringing people together in the spirit of friendship and solidarity. Current projects include
  1. Never Walk Alone
  2. London, Museums, and Me
  • Host  awareness-raising events of various formats ranging from arts events to panel discuss
  • Work to build an active community of people and groups interested in forced migration and displacement issues and to provide space for information exchange, debate and positive action.
Here is what some Fences participants have said about the organisation:

"I will always remember the first (walk) like a walk full of hope and care and kindness.
It was the first time I was welcomed by the English people. I had nothing, no money, and they took care of everything”
Kobi.

“These are difficult times, but the joy my kids had when they opened the giftbox was enormous”
A, Albania

Here is what the media has said about the organisation:

“broaden and democratise access to the countryside by... creating positive experiences for people who may not have grown up feeling that rural areas were for them”
