North of England Refugee Service
The North of England Refugee Service was established in 1989. They are an independent and charitable organisation which exists to meet the needs and promote the interests of asylum seekers and refugees who have arrived or have settled in the North of England.
NERS acts as an agent of positive change in order to improve the everyday life conditions of asylum seekers and refugees, and to promote social inclusion by facilitating their integration and equal participation within British society.
Since April 2000 NERS has been operating the One Stop Service contract in the North east. This service is available to all asylum seekers who are entitled to support from the Home Office "National Asylum Support Service" (NASS) which was established under the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
As well as working directly with asylum seekers, NERS is also involved in a host of other refugee related work.
