Jessica Thompson

2016/17 Fellow

Jess co-founded Migrateful, a cookery initiative where refugees and migrants teach their traditional cuisines to the public. She also fundraised for Housing Justice.

During Year Here, Jess was placed at the Bromley By Bow Centre where she developed an English language club and made a film about the impact of cuts to English language teaching on immigrant communities. Before Year Here, Jess was working in Ceuta, the Spanish enclave in Morocco, with West African migrants.
