Founded in 2002, Streatham Drop-In Centre is an independent charity that aims to provide a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for refugee and asylum seeker individuals and families living in the London Borough of Lambeth and surrounding areas.

We  work in partnership with a wide range of voluntary, community and statutory groups to provide specialised support, information and advice, as well as a wide range of health and wellbeing interventions to empower asylum seeker and refugee communities.

Managed by a committee of trustees, we have a dedicated and knowledgeable staff and volunteer team.
