Practical Support for Women With No Recourse to Public Funds

We are the first specialist service in the UK run and managed by people with lived experience of migration, asylum or destitution. We represent 11 cultures, speak 14 languages and between us we have more than 10 years of shared experience supporting destitute women. 

We are defined by our no borders ethos and refuse to consent to the current border regime. 

UWS is our active, ongoing resistance to the dehumanising and brutalising effects of forced destitution entrenched in the immigration system.
