With thanks to the people and staff of the Islington Centre. With special thanks to Juliet Stevenson for her generous support of this film and the Centre. Filmed by Tomo Brody, Edited by Charles Chabot. Thanks to Jane Ray and Sita Brahmachari for their ongoing Art and Writing classes.
We need to raise £30,000 by January 2016 so we can open one more day a week.
‘We watch the news and see the tragic situation of migrants and refugees on our borders and dying in the Mediterranean. Our response to the scale of this humanitarian disaster can be to feel helpless, not knowing how to respond. But right in our midst there is a place that is clearly helping so many people....men, women and children who are simply looking for a safe place to call home. When I visited the centre many of them told me that it was the only place of refuge for them… a life line.
Please give generously’
