What we do at Micro Rainbow
What we are doing to help LGBTQI asylum seekers and refugees
About our moving on programme for LGBTQI asylum seekers and refugees
Many LGBTQI people flee their country because of the persecution they face due to their sexuality, gender identity or intersex status. Those who find safety in the UK and become refugees have to build a whole new life. Micro Rainbow can help in this process with employability and moving on support.
Why we provide social inclusion activities for LGBTQI asylum seekers and refugees
LGBTQI refugees are still rejected by their families and communities even in the UK. They become extremely isolated, without enough social safety nets and opportunities in life. They live at the margins of society, often in environments that expose them to increased abuse and violence.
