What we do

Our goal is to ensure liberty, equality and justice for LGBT asylum seekers in the UK.

No Going Back was founded in 2012. We take our name from a damning report published by Stonewall. The 2010 document reported on how gay asylum seekers who had been raped, tortured and threatened with death because of their sexual orientation in their home country were being routinely deported because of systemic discrimination in the UK asylum system.

Our team is made up of leading professional people with a broad range of skills. Our shared goal is to ensure liberty, equality and justice for LGBT asylum seekers in the UK.
 

Our Aims
  • To make a positive difference to the lives of the UK’s LGBT community who may suffer persecution and/or are in fear of their lives in their own country as a result of their sexual orientation, or require immigration advice by providing an outstanding, specialist service.
  • To build effective networks and partnerships with non-governmental organisations, governments, charities and the LGBT communities in the UK.
  • To educate and develop people’s understanding of the barriers LGBT asylum seekers face.

 

Our Activities
  • To provide specialised, high quality asylum and immigration support and advice to the LGBT community in the UK.
  • To provide awareness-raising training regarding LGBT issues.
  • To research and publish reports on the plight of LGBT communities across the world.

 

Our Values
  • A belief that no one should live in fear of persecution and that everyone should have the right to a private life.
  • A respect for and encouragement of diversity.
  • A social obligation to make a difference to disadvantaged individuals, groups and communities.
  • A commitment to transparent ethical legal practices.
