The Jesuit Refugee Service UK works to accompany, serve and advocate on behalf of refugees and forced migrants. In the UK, JRS has a special ministry to serve those who are detained under the immigration rules or who are left destitute. JRS UK runs a weekly day centre which is a place where destitute asylum seekers can get a hot meal, small travel allowance and other essential items, and gain emotional support and friendship from volunteers, staff and other refugees. JRS UK provides an additional programme of activities outside the day centre that includes drama workshops, photography, peer support groups and cultural activities. JRS UK also runs a detention outreach programme, visiting and letter writing to detainees, as well as a hosting scheme for destitute asylum seekers.
