Alison Curtis

Senior Caseworker

As our Senior Caseworker, Alison advises refugee, asylum-seeking and migrant members of our community at our centre each week on the issues they face, on housing, benefits, asylum support, health, education and a variety of other matters. She applies her expertise to support our members over weeks or months with their challenges and ensures they understand their rights, from ensuring asylum-seeking people start receiving the statutory support they’re entitled to, to organising housing for those newly with refugee status.

Previously, Alison worked for seven years locally at Citizens Advice Hammersmith and Fulham, where she trained as a generalist advisor. We partnered with her from the pandemic onwards while she was in this role, when she did invaluable work with our members and built longstanding relationships with our wider community.
