We know we make a difference

 

Notre Dame Refugee Centre has been working with refugees and asylum seekers for more than 20 years, thanks to the generosity of Londoners who share our aims and beliefs.

Notre Dame Refugee Centre was originally set up by Notre Dame de France Church in 1996, in response to changes in asylum and immigration law.

 

Notre Dame Refugee Centre was registered as an independent charity in 2007.

Like many of our supporters, many of our visitors are French speaking, but we have welcomed visitors from 98 different countries over the five past years.

We have five part-time staff members and a team of 40 volunteers. 

Four of our advice workers are Office of the Immigration Services Commission (OISC) qualified – with three holding OISC Level 3.

We hold an Advice Quality Standard mark.

Thanks to the commitment of our staff, volunteers and donors, we offer emotional and practical support to people who often find doors closed to them elsewhere.

Our values

We understand and value diversity across the board and pride ourselves in building bridges between people and cultures. We see this as making an important contribution to London and British society as a whole.
