Why fundraise for Refugee Action?

Refugee Action has been welcoming refugees with open arms since 1981. We exist to support refugees and people seeking asylum to rebuild their lives in the UK. Every day, our frontline staff are helping people to escape homelessness, find work and build a new life for themselves. And our campaigns are fighting for a fairer future for refugees, challenging laws and systems that stop refugees and people seeking asylum from thriving.

This work is only possible because of people like you. With every mile that you walk or run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. By taking on this challenge, you are giving refugees hope for the future.
