"Friends of Lunar House" expands to second day!

Following the successful running of our "Friends of Lunar House" service which offers a friendly face to those seeking sanctuary when they report to Lunar House, a group of local volunteers and members of South London Citizens, will be expanding the service to two days a week. "Friends" has been running for two and a half years just one day a week, but has proved to be a success in improving not only the individuals visit, but Home Office staff also claim it has improved relationships between civil servants, citizens and people seeking sanctuary.

Expanding the service also demonstrates the relationship that has been created with the UKBA and their willingness to engage with our work. Plans are on the way to establish "Friends" services at other UKBA buildings. For more information on how to get involved in the project or in any of the other projects CITIZENS for Sanctuary is running, then please contact Projects Organiser Carina Crawford-Rolt at
