Croeso, Welcome

The Welsh Refugee Council is an independent charity  supporting asylum seekers, refugees, and displaced people in Wales.  For 23 years we have continued to provide essential support to those who are forced to flee their homeland in search of their basic human rights. 


  • provide information, advice and practical support to refugees 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.
