Tamsin Koumis

2017/18 Fellow

Tamsin is a Project Development Officer with New Europeans, delivering Brexit citizens rights info sessions to European communities across London. She has also joined MigrationWork research consultancy.

Tamsin was a 2017/18 Fellow, where she was placed at City Gateway Alternative Provision (CGAP). During the consultancy phase, she researched the journey and impact of the St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre. She was mentored by Mike Mompi.

Before Year Here, Tamsin co-founded the Dunkirk Legal Support Team, a human rights project facilitating access to legal information, advice and representation in Dunkirk Refugee Camp. Throughout five years’ involvement in the migrants rights sector, Tamsin has been struck by the systemic lack of access to adequate and comprehensive information for vulnerable migrants.
