Who We Are

London Welcome Project is a non-profit, member-driven social centre for asylum seekers refugees, and other migrants.

We were set up in 2013 by three volunteers at Hackney Migrant Centre, who noticed that drop-in centres and public places where asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants could meet and seek support were often closed on Sundays. They wanted to create a space which would be welcoming and would provide food and friendship to visitors each week.

LWP aims to challenge the injustice and discrimination that many of our members and visitors face by providing a place of welcome in London. We seek to empower our visitors, offering them the opportunity to socialise and break the isolation they so often face.

Our space is open to anyone and everyone.
