Welcome. HARPWEB consists of three websites, each developed in collaboration with health professionals working with asylum seekers and refugees in the UK. They are designed to enable you to easily access the wealth of information, practical tools, and articles that have been written by health care professionals, NGOs, academics and research bodies with expert knowledge of working with asylum seekers and refugees, both in the UK and other countries.
Explanations of the main areas of this site can be found on the left. The other two HARPWEB sites are:
Harp Mental Health and Well-being Resource is for health professionals involved in assisting asylum seekers and refugees.
Communicate - Multilingual and Multicultural Health Resources contains the Multilingual Appointment Card used by thousands of professionals in contact with asylum seekers and refugees.
All our sites continue to grow as we learn about the new research initiatives and resource materials that are currently being developed across the UK. Please help us to share these important developments by clicking the Site Suggestions link to inform us of what you are doing.
