Why We Exist

Refugee Support was founded in 2016 in response to governmental failure across Europe to protect and support people who had fled violent conflict—a failure which continues to this day. Outside of Europe, the situation is often worse.

Refugees regularly end up in terrible accommodation, barely able to make ends meet. We provide practical help and let refugees know they are welcome and that we care about them. Through our pioneering Dignity Centre model, we give people choices and offer a sense of normality

Rebuilding lives with dignity

We believe that everyone has a right to dignity—a commitment enshrined in Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

We foster international solidarity by giving people from anywhere in the world the opportunity to support refugees in dignified, meaningful ways.

All too often, large humanitarian agencies are slow and governments are dehumanising. We able to respond more quickly, more personally, and in more caring ways. 

We are contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030—specifically, Goals 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 16: to end poverty and hunger; promote wellbeing, gender equality, and decent work for all; and foster peaceful and inclusive societies.
