Easy to use and to access, The Testimony Project website is practical, pragmatic and straightforward. Ease of use and accessibility are paramount.
The Testimony Project gives refugee women and women seeking asylum a safe place in which to share stories, ideas and information and seeks to put this community in touch with the wider community, including politicians and the media.
The Testimony Project focuses on women because they are the most at risk in the UK's asylum-seeking process, and most responsible for children, who also suffer disproportionately. However, the information available online is also relevant to and useful for men in similar circumstances.
