What we do

We match pairs of medical students to newly arrived refugee and asylum-seeking individuals and families in Oxford, who may need support and advocacy in particular around their health needs.

We usually take referrals from GPs.

Medical students work closely with GPs to identify how ORHI can support refugee families and individuals referred to the project.

Students provide support and guidance to families with regards to their medical needs and where appropriate socio-cultural life.
