Croeso, Welcome

The Welsh Refugee Council is a Wales based charity, committed to protecting the human rights of asylum seekers and refugees in Wales. For nearly 25 years now, we see first-hand the effects of fleeing persecution, conflict, torture, rape and abuse. We work to:

    • evidence our effectiveness to stakeholders,
    • positively influence perceptions of asylum and migration in Wales,
    • meet the needs of asylum seekers and refugees in Wales and
    • create active participation of asylum seekers and refugees.

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
