Meeting Point has been running since 2003 and aims to meet the emotional, practical and social needs of refugees and asylum seekers. We are based at Christ Church in Armley and welcome individuals and families at all stages of the asylum process. No referral is needed, but we do ask clients to register with the project at the drop-in before attending any of the group activities.

Our drop-in provides a safe and welcoming environment. We provide refreshments and a hot meal; food parcels, clothing and toiletries; advocacy; social space and conversation and activities.
