Rainbow Migration supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+) people through the asylum and immigration system. Our vision is a world where there is equality, dignity, respect and safety for all people in the expression of their sexual or gender identity.
Service delivery: We provide practical and emotional support to improve self-esteem and confidence, reduce isolation, and help access health services and housing. We also give specialist legal information and advice to LGBTQI+ people who are seeking asylum or making partnership applications to live in the UK with their partners. We have partnerships with several law firms to whom we can refer our service users for quality legal representation.
Influencing: We carry out campaigning, policy work and strategic litigation to improve the asylum and immigration system. We also engage directly with civil servants, parliamentarians, the government and the judiciary to create change.
Training and supporting other organisations: We work with lawyers, charities, the Home Office and others to improve the asylum and immigration system and services for LGBTQI+ people seeking asylum.
