helpinleeds.com has been updated from the original site, which LASSN launched during Refugee Week in 2016
- contains more than 200 places where refugees and asylum seekers can find help in Leeds,
- is translated into 19 different languages
- designed with cheap smartphones in mind, so it should look fabulous, no matter how old your phone is.
It also contains hard-to-find numbers for things like the the Home Office and Refugee Council offices in Leeds.
Some of the key changes are:
- Simpler entries, with all the contact information easily accessible
- We’ve updated the list of Categories (including adding “Trafficking and gender based violence” and “Volunteering”)
- The website loads much faster because it is “lighter” and has slightly fewer features that not many people used, for example:
- Most recent updates,
- The “print this entry” feature
- We removed turn-by-turn directions (although you can still use Google Maps very easily)
