Meeting Point started in February 2003 and works with Refugees and Asylum Seekers; we are based at Christ Church in Armley, Leeds.

Meeting Point aims to serve the needs of Refugees and Asylum Seekers regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, ability or legal status. Meeting Point principally aims to work with Refugees and Asylum Seekers towards social integration. We also provide a range of suitable community provisions in association with other organisations to meet the needs of our beneficiaries – whether health, employment, advice, family support or food provision. We also aim to reduce negative stereotypes and break down barriers in the local community.
