Eastside Community Heritage has worked closely with RAMFEL to document their 25 year history, collecting oral histories from former and current staff and service users to record their long history of supporting refugees and migrations across East London.

2017, marks RAMFEL's 25th anniversary. From small and humble beginnings in 1992, it has often been described as ‘punching above its weight’ because of its determination to challenge stigma, prejudice and discrimination wherever it is found.
The last 25 years have bought a lot of highs and lows, but the organisation has continued throughout the toughest of times to be there for refugees and migrants because our fight as an organisation, is nothing in comparison to their personal fight for acceptance.
"RAMFEL has literally been at the heart of so many discussions. The unique casework and campaigning service has allowed it to draw grassroots evidence of the everyday impact of successive immigration acts, public policies and campaigns on issues on inequality and injustice as they impact on all communities."
