Asylum-seekers are often demonised in  public imagination.  The reality for many is a life of fear, despair and destitution.  We support agencies that work to relieve and assist those who reach our shores and often find the door shut to them.

Keep in touch with us.  We report back to our supporters through our AGM and annual report and by occasional email updates.  And we post information on upcoming fundraising events such as our annual carol singing at Oxford Circus.



Use our Lent Resources.  We invite you to pray and reflect at this time on the situation of refugees and asylum seekers.
