KCIA Kongolese Centre for Information & Advice
We offer free, independent and confidential advice and information on immigration (OISC level 1 & 2), welfare benefits, debt, health, homelessness, housing and education in Westminster and neighbouring boroughs.
We provide counselling and therapeutic support to refugee and asylum seeking women who are survivors of trauma, often gender-based. This includes trafficking, domestic violence, rape, forced marriage, female genital mutilation (FGM) and others. Our approach is holistic, looking at the development of the women, and their children, both emotionally and in their day to day practical life.
Our health project which has been running for many years, aims to increase access to health services and healthy living activities and identify barriers to access to healthy living and health services. We raise awareness on prevention of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and many more.
In addition, we run weekly IT and ESOL classes.
