Asylum Justice and Release (AJAR)
AJAR is a network of people in Leeds, often from faith communities, seeking to help people currently in detention who have a valid case for applying for bail.
AJAR seeks to support asylum seekers who:
- have been detained after the period when other prisoners facing a similar charge have already been released
- are struggling with support
- would live in the Leeds area if they were released
Our volunteers are drawn from faith communities in Leeds and we work with those who have a pre-existing connection to the area, and so are able to access their own support community to varying extents. We also give talks to churches, other faith communities and interested groups in Leeds about asylum issues.
