The Refugee Council
The Refugee Council is one of the leading charities in the UK working directly with refugees, and supporting them to rebuild their lives.
We speak up for refugees using our direct work as an evidence base, and ensure refugees have a stronger and more influential voice in decisions that will affect them. We work with a range of partners and in collaboration to ensure we can best support our clients.
We are a human rights charity, independent of government and we work to ensure that refugees are given the protection they need, that they are treated with respect and understanding, and that they have the same rights, opportunities and responsibilities as other members of our society.
We provide a warm welcome, and give food and basic provisions to newly arrived or destitute refugees. We help those who have fled oppressive regimes, suffered persecution or even torture, leaving behind everything they once called home. We ensure that every separated young refugee who comes to us feels safe, valued and listened to.
Thank you to any supporter taking on an event in aid of Refugee Council! And a huge thank you to all those who donate to people taking on a challenge!!
All the funds raise- work towards making a large impact on the lives of refugees in the UK.
