About LAWR

LAWR is an umbrella community group, working with Lewes Group in Support of Refugees and Asylum Seekers and Lewes Actions for Refugees, in order to:

  • Create a climate for the welcome of refugees and asylum seekers in the Lewes area.
  • Prepare to receive and provide long­term support for Vulnerable Syrian Refugees and other refugees and asylum seekers, including unaccompanied asylum seeking children.
  • Press locally and nationally for the further resettlement and better treatment of those seeking sanctuary, particularly unaccompanied children.
