Will your church be there for refugees this winter?

By joining forces with Refugee Action this winter, your church can make sure that refugees are treated with humanity.

When people seeking safety arrive here in the UK, they’ve often been through unimaginable trauma. As survivors of war and persecution, all they want is a safe place to call home. Too often, people looking for refuge on our shores are faced with a bleak future of poverty, isolation and uncertainty. It doesn’t have to be this way. Together with your church, we can stand up for refugees this winter.

We’ve been welcoming refugees with open arms for nearly 40 years

Since 1981 Refugee Action been welcoming refugees with open arms. Through our refugee resettlement scheme, frontline projects and campaigning work, we make sure that people looking for safety feel welcome, heard and protected.

With the help of supporters who share our values, we have helped refugees to claim asylum, get the rights they’re entitled to and integrate with their new communities. Our vision is a future where refugees and people seeking protection are welcomed and given the support they need to build safe and productive lives in Britain.
