Open Door have a range of weekly activity sessions

Coronavirus Update

Throughout the pandemic Open Door North East has continued to support hundreds of asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants who have been at risk of homelessness and destitution. However, in order to ensure that these core needs continue to be met, we have not yet reopened our social spaces and drop in services. 

We are very much looking forward to opening up more of our services in the future, but right now we are offering housing and intensive casework for newly recognised refugees and asylum seekers who are at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness and destitution. 

Working Together with Partners

The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all in so many ways but asylum seekers,  refugees and other migrants have been disproportionately affected through lack of family networks, limited English skills, destitution, lack of internet and sources of appropriate information and poor physical and mental health. 

We are working in partnership with other local and national organisations to ensure that together we have been able to help as many people as we can in as many different ways as possible. 


Please consider helping us to continue providing this support to asylum seekers, refugees, and other migrants.
