The Migrants Resource Centre – helping those far from home
There is a tired building on the corner of a well-heeled London street where migrants are taught life and communication skills.
The building belongs to the Migrants Resource Centre (MRC) – an organisation that holds out an under-funded hand to some of London’s newest arrivals. Its aim is to provide: “a range of free services to support migrants, refugees and asylum seekers to enable them to contribute to society in the UK”.
