BLGBT Asylum Seekers service

About ‘BLGBT Asylum Seekers service’

While we can’t offer specialist advice about seeking asylum, we can support you to access the services and activities at the LGBT Centre. We can give you information about the social and support groups, fitness and cultural activities that take place here. If you would like this information, please visit the LGBT Centre Monday to Thursday, 10am to 6pm. Emotional Support: f you would like to arrange to see a member of staff for a one-to-one emotional support session, you will need to book an appointment. You can arrange the appointment when you visit the Centre, or you can call 0121 643 0821. If you need advise about seeking Asylum, appeals and the process, you can also arrange an appointment to see a fully trained and experienced advisor on LGBT asylum and immigration. We hold an advice ‘surgery’ once a month, on the last Wednesday, with an advisor from UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG). To book this appointment, call 0121 643 0821 or ask when you visit. There is also an asylum social group run by Journey Church which meets at the Centre on the third Friday of the month, from 1pm to 4pm. There is no need to call ahead for this - you can just drop in.

This service is part of the organisation called Birmingham LGBT
