Regrettably we must inform you of the sad news that our services at Dost will terminate at the end of May 2017. Therefore, we are closing or referring cases on as appropriate and we much appreciate your cooperation with us on this.

As you may be aware, Dost has struggled with securing funding under its current structure. As such, the Dost team – including our volunteers – are in the process of setting up Dost as an independent entity. We are hoping the outcome of these efforts could see Dost re-open after a pause in service, but we cannot confirm this at this stage. 

We are in the process of informing young people of this news and hope you can support them during this time. 

Thank you very much for working alongside Dost in the interest of young people, we hope to work with you again in the future.

If you feel you may be able to offer any assistance or support to set up as an independent entity then please inform us (contact the service manager:

The Refugee Council’s Children’s Section plan to open a drop in surgery in Stratford from May for separated asylum seekers and refugees. For details please contact 020 7346 1134 or email

Our supporter, Sanghee Kim, is running the Vienna half-marathon to raise money for Dost which will be a great help to us in the coming months. Please donate to her Just Giving page and show your support.
