Who we are:

Safe Passage was founded in late 2015 in response to the refugee ‘crisis’. In the past four years we have grown from a small UK project, to an international organisation with 23 members of staff supporting refugees to access safe and legal routes to asylum across Europe. We are a cross border organisation with offices in the UK, Greece, and France.

  • Our vision is for every person seeking asylum to be able to access a safe and legal route to a place where they can lead a full and dignified life.
  • We do things differently - championing refugees’ rights through strategic legal work, advocacy, capacity building and community organising.
  • We are focused on achieving systemic change in refugee and asylum policy at both nation-state and international level.

To date over 2,000 individuals have travelled to safety through routes we have opened. Our work is recognised with awards from Liberty, Sheila McKechnie, the European Parliament and EU Commission and chosen as Guardian ‘Charity of the Year’.
