Breaking Barriers exhibition: Freedom is not easy

Mishcon de Reya sponsored 'From Fear to Freedom' - an exhibition of portraits of refugees, taken in the place they first felt free or safe in the UK, by photographer Caroline Irby for the charity Breaking Barriers. The portraits were accompanied by interviews from award winning journalist Veronique Mistiaen and were showcased at The Archivist's Gallery in July 2016.

Breaking Barriers offers a holistic service designed to ensure that refugees can find meaningful employment that is commensurate with their skills, experience and qualifications. In doing so, the charity helps them to successfully settle in the country and to integrate with local communities.
