We do this by providing emotional and moral support to disadvantaged individuals and families.

Such as asylum seekers and refugees who are at high risks of depression due to loneliness and low-income earners ravaged with poverty, and those who lack skills to get jobs that can cater for themselves and their families.

Our community also extends rays of light to the underprivileged Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, with major priority given to those in the UK and its surroundings.

Light in the darkness was founded in May 2018 by a former refugee, Ms. Beatrice Guessie, who knows what it feels like to be tortured mentally, physically, and psychologically in the UK’s Asylum system—having experienced it first-hand. However, rather than let the experience hold her back in life, she has chosen to be a medium to shine a light on other people who are disadvantaged and have been through similar experiences.

2021-2022 LITD C.I.C. Conference planned for the awareness in which the experience and the ordeal of these and similar women are the driver for this conference. We aim to bring to fore the daily struggles of women and children in obtaining adequate care and support from Government Services while feeling safe and well looked after. We hope to examine the cultural stereotyping among social workers and other professionals and the stigma from past mental health struggles. These two issues create barriers to people from ethnic minority communities in accessing adequate care and support. The relationship should be of trust and respect; however, the opposite is seemingly the case with many Manchester families.

LITD C.I.C. provides a range of services for women and families experiencing abuse, trauma, discrimination, mental health issues, and immigration-related issues in Manchester & its surroundings.

We equip women and families with a wide range of tools such as:-

  • Counselling
  • Advocacy to help reduce the risk of self-harm
  • Advocacy to help reduce the risk of harm to others
  • Support their transition, integration, and development within the UK’s society
  • Addressing and championing their daily basis social challenges and experience exchanges among them
  • Organizing social events
  • Organizing social conferences
  • Organizing social workshops
  • Organizing social seminars
