The Lots of Big Ideas (LOBI) blog aims to counter media distortions of asylum issues. Our wiki is a space where asylum-seekers and refugees - people who don't usually have a voice - can make their stories heard.
These are stories about what it's really like to be an asylum-seeker; stories about why people end up leaving their home and loved ones to seek asylum in a strange and often unwelcoming place. Many of our contributors are members of the Write to Life group at the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture;
but we want to encourage anyone to add their voice here.
