In 2012 we released a major research report that examined the challenges facing migrant support groups and shared some ideas, strategies and best practice for addressing those challenges. You can view the report here: http://steedee.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/networks-of-asylum-support-print2.pdf
We have also published various academic pieces relating to migrant support groups:
