What We Do

Work with RCOs

Refugee Community Organisations (RCOs) play a fundamental role in helping refugees become integrated in Welsh society.  The organisations are led by refugees and have become an integral part of community life for many individuals.

Build Partnerships

Working in partnership is vital in enabling us to meet the complex needs of asylum seekers and refugees and to improve policy and practice on migration in Wales.

Education and Training

The Welsh Refugee Council provides a wide range of education and training opportunities that work to enhance the knowledge and skills base of asylum seekers and refugees, volunteers and external organisations.

Promote Positive Perceptions

We are not here for pleasure, we are here for protection” These are very strong words from Abubakr Elgadi, a refugee from Sudan. These feelings are set against a backdrop of fear and vulnerability.

Deliver Support Services

We ensure that the inclusion of asylum seekers and refugees starts at the very point of entry through our provision of essential specialist support services. Their delivery ensures that the most vulnerable individuals and communities are able to rebuild their lives in Wales.

Influence Policy

The Welsh Refugee Council influences policy and practice surrounding the asylum system in Wales and the UK to ensure that the needs of asylum seekers and refugees are understood and responded to.
