Simplifying the asylum process with the British Red Cross

British Red Cross

The Dream: How might we help Refugees to get the relevant support that they need within a timely manner and how might we improve the effectiveness of casework processes and derive greater insights?

Applying a tailored design thinking approach for non-profits, a diverse group of British Red Cross stakeholders from the C-suite to the field partnered to surface fresh digital solutions ideas to smooth the asylum seeker process in the UK. Leveraging the global knowledge and visionary innovation expertise of Avanade, these solutions have the capacity to be consolidated into a single platform that will give greater dignity to asylum seekers and refugees and enable them to thrive in their communities.

“Refugees are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, with the same hopes and ambitions as us—except that a twist of fate has bound their lives to a global refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale.”
Khaled Hosseini
