Seeking Asylum is a Fundamental Human Right
All people have the right to live in peace.
Convention refugees need proper support to allow them to integrate into our communities. Support to access education, housing, jobs will allow forced migrants to flourish, prosper, and thrive. Our Government is choosing to deny Convention Refugees access to this vital support, instead choosing to have one desk based worker contact the 250 new refugees every year as their resettlement plan.

Become a regular supporter to ensure we can continue our work for vulnerable asylum seekers.
Asylum seekers are people who, because of fear of persecution in their home countries, have crossed international borders in search of protection. No-one chooses to be an asylum seeker.
That is what we are here for – to provide safety, support and advocacy for all people who are driven to seek asylum, for any reason.A global crisis
