Our Partners

Ariadne Partnership

The Ariadne Partnership is a coordinated partnership between Open Door North East, Middlesbrough Asylum Project, Justice First, Refugee Futures and British Red Cross in response to the gaps in provision for asylum seekers and refugees across the Tees Valley. The partnership provides welcome and orientation services, well-being support, practical support and casework for people experiencing destitution, legal support and advice, English language support and volunteering opportunities across the partnership. Ariadne Partnership has already had a hugely significant impact on the effectiveness of asylum and refugee services across the local area since its inception in 2014.

Justice First provides OISC-regulated free immigration advice and casework to asylum seekers and refugees.

Refugee Futures leads on the management and delivery of the Ariadne Project in Stockton through coordinating partnerships across the town.


MAP focus is on the orientation of new asylum seekers and wellbeing activities for the asylum-seeking community across Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland.

British Red Cross will provide practical emergency support for asylum seekers and refugees experiencing destitution as part of Ariadne and shared casework responsibilities with the other charities.
