Our Work in Malta
JRS Malta seeks to accompany, serve and defend the rights of asylum seekers and forcibly displaced persons who arrive in Malta. The team engages with people at different stages of their journey, often meeting people shortly after their arrival, and accompanying them as they navigate life in Malta.
JRS regularly visits detention and open centers to provide basic information, mainly about the rights of asylum seekers, documentation, education, and employment. Furthermore, the team provides professional legal, social work, psychological and health care support to refugees in centers and the community. JRS Malta also advocates on behalf of refugees on a national level and runs awareness-raising programs in schools, Parishes, and various social groups.
