A note from the charity

From November 2023 our working name will be IASK – Immigration and Asylum Support Kirklees. Along with our new name, we will have a whole new look, logo and website. Earlier this year, we decided to change our name to better reflect the work we do and where we do it. So, from November, DASH will be IASK.

Our mission remains to work with people seeking asylum and refugees in Kirklees to help  understand the complex asylum and immigration system and support with casework and welfare.

Our vision to help people seeking asylum and refugees live safe and fulfilling lives is clearer than ever.

Our dedicated team is the same, just growing.

We can’t wait to see where it takes us.
