Mission Statement 

Asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants who have been dispersed in North Staffordshire will not be marginalised or mistreated because of their immigration status.

If you wish to offer your support to asylum seekers or think you can benefit from our services, please get in touch or come and find us at The Asha Centre, Unit 7, Cooper Street, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent ST1 4DW.
