The history of Action Foundation
Action Foundation is an award-winning charity based in Newcastle upon Tyne providing support to disadvantaged refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants across Tyne and Wear. Through our three supported housing projects and English language school we aim to plug a gap in existing provision and enable vulnerable migrants to; avoid homelessness and extreme poverty, access vital services, increase their skills and employability, access legal support, integrate and live independently. To do this we work closely with local and national organisations including the British Red Cross, North East Law Centre & West End Refugee Service. Our work with these organisations has enabled us to arrange family reunions and secure legal support for our beneficiaries with no recourse to public funds amongst a range of other support provision.
