The Diaspora Support Network supports the resettlement of foreign national detainees and unlocks their potential to positively contribute, build and sustain their communities. As well as providing this support to individuals who are facing deportation from the UK (deportation following a criminal conviction, as opposed to administrative removal), they also run outreach sessions aimed at anyone who is having an immigration problem related to potential deportation of themselves or a family member who is a foreign national who may be in prison or in a removal centre. DSN aims to provide them with details on where they can get support in the UK and in their home country.
These outreach sessions are run on the first Saturday of every month, at theCarnegie Library, 188 Herne Hill Road, London, SE24 0AG. The venue can be accessed from Loughborough Junction rail station (10 minute walk) or from the P4 bus which stops immediately outside the Library. This bus can be accessed opposite Brixton underground station. See info here.
