According to our research on the ground, most or some of those migrants suffer from social exclusion, isolation. Some are totally isolated without any social support because of the lack of self-help from charities lead by group as MEG which takes into account all these aspects. As front-lines (people who had been through the same experience) we can understand their feelings and needs. MEG charitable work is mainly focused on helping and supporting LTIM such as refugees and Asylum seekers including other vulnerable migrants because are disadvantaged within our society and some are affected by a huge stigma linked to their integration within the UK’s society. MEG approaches them within their communities such as at their home, college, etc. Please contact MEG if you want to volunteer with us or to work in partnership with us.
