Refugee Action has supported refugees and people seeking asylum since 1981. We work with people who have survived some of the world's worst regimes, following their arrival in the UK. We get them the basic support they need to live again with dignity. Then we help them build safe, happy and productive lives in the UK.
We do this by providing expert advice and casework, building the capacity of partner organisations, and working with allies to change government policy. Our vision is that refugees and people seeking asylum will be welcome in the UK. They will get justice, live free of poverty and be able to successfully rebuild their lives.
