The Welsh Refugee Council is an independent charity working with asylum seekers, refugees, and displaced people in Wales. For 23 years we have continued to provide essential support and advice to those who are forced to flee their homeland in search of their basic human rights.
- provide information, advice and practical support to people seeking asylum and those with refugee status within Wales.
- listen to the experiences of our clients and increase our understanding of the needs of vulnerable refugees, influence policy and practice to ensure that it meets the needs of asylum seekers and refugees.
- challenge discrimination and change the perceptions of refugees in Wales.

We support the UNHCR’s global resettlement programme.
The Welsh Refugee Council joins 25 UK Charities asking the UK Government to do more for Syria by joining the global resettlement programme. We call upon the UK Government to share the responsibility and accept 30,000 of the most vulnerable refugees from the region. For more information
