Fostering connections between the Saharawi refugee and diaspora community in the UK and supporting community-led initiatives.

This first-of-its-kind research project, funded by the National Community Lottery Fund, fits within our aim of raising awareness of and building support for the Saharawi cause here in the UK, and contributes to our broader mission of amplifying the voices and visions of the Saharawi people.
The purpose of this research project is to:

  1. Assess and understand the demographics (age, gender, education, employment, etc) of the Saharawi refugee and diaspora community in the UK, with a particular focus in the Greater London area
  2. Identify the most important issues faced by these communities, as well as their needs and aspirations through in-depth interviews, data collection and surveys, with further consultation of hard-to-reach and intersectional groups including women, youth, elderly and disabled.
  3. To use this information to respond to these needs and aspirations through future partnerships and
    activities with other UK groups and organisations, with a particular focus on refugee and women’s rights organisations.
  4. To develop a platform (virtual and in-person) for community members to build connections, foster
    relationships and raise awareness of their shared needs, goals and challenges.
