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.
