Borough of Sanctuary Survey

Closed 30 May 2021

Opened 7 Jan 2021


We would like to hear about the experience of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants living in Lewisham, both positive and negative.

We will use this information to improve the way we deliver services, to identify new services that may be required and to get information on how these residents would like to contribute to their local community.


What happens next

We will collate the results of this survey by the end of January 2021 and provide information on the results in February 2021. We will use the information to report back to services and identify ways they can improve the way they work with refugees,asylum seekers and migrants.

If you wish to find out more about the work that is done to support refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Lewisham you can attend the Lewisham Migration Forum, or sign up for the newsletter. We will present the outcome of the survey at one of their regular meetings, and provide updates on how we have used the information to improve services.
