Community work

Room to Heal

Room to Heal supports refugees and people seeking asylum who are torture survivors to rebuild their lives in exile, through an integrated programme of therapeutic and casework assistance in the context of a community of survivors. Room to Heal are based in London.

Room to Heal worked with BIHR to develop accessible human rights information for Room to Heal members and staff so that they feel confident to use the language of human rights in their interactions with public services.

What we made

Guides for refugees, people seeking asylum and those supporting them in English, Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish and Tigrinya. Please note our English guide contains extra pages, including example letters for caseworkers.
