One Community Link (OCL) is a registered charity based in Stockton on Tees which aims to identify, articulate and support the needs of asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Teesside. We seek to overcome barriers to successful integration, empower our community to freedom and to challenge any form of discrimination. OCL was formed in August 2016 after the Brexit referendum, with the purpose to promote social integration by raising awareness about hate crime and empowering BAME to report hate crime .
