The Welsh Refugee Council is an independent charity helping refugees and asylum seekers to rebuild their lives in Wales. We have offices in Cardiff, Wrexham, Swansea and Newport.
- We provide an average of 400 specialist advice and support sessions per week to newly arrived asylum seekers, those who are awaiting a decision for their applications, failed asylum seekers, unaccompanied children and refugees who have been granted permission to stay in the UK.
- We work with the Welsh Government and the UKBA to develop fair and impartial policies for refugees and asylum seekers.
- We coordinate and implement innovative and artistic events alongside refugee and asylum seeker communities.
- We provide an informed perspective based on experience and commitment to work, in partnership with other sector organisations, individuals and Refugee Community Organisations, to achieve our core business objectives through promoting the inclusion of refugees in local communities throughout Wales.
Our advice services take us to the heart of the issues that asylum seekers and refugees experience when fleeing their country. In many cases, we are the first point of contact for people suffering from the after-effects of torture, rape and other issues. Our work saves lives on a daily basis.
We welcome enquiries about how to get involved in our work.
