Refugee Council

We have been supporting refugees in the UK since 1951.

We work directly with thousands of refugees each year.  We support them from the moment they arrive in the UK.  We provide crisis advice and practical support, help them to integrate into their new communities and offer mental health counselling to help them come to terms with the trauma so many of them have experienced.

We are the only organisation providing a national service in support of refugee children and young people who arrive in the UK alone.



Volunteer with us and help refugees rebuild their lives.

Our volunteers are amazing! They come from all walks of life, from retired therapists providing mental health support to students on social care placements, past Refugee Council clients and local people. They contribute in many different ways, from arranging trips or hospital appointments to giving English language sessions and befriending.

We are always looking for volunteers in London, Yorkshire and Humber, the West Midlands and the East of England. We ask all volunteers to commit to at least one day/one session per week and for a minimum of three months. Some roles require specialist skills but most only require enthusiasm and an interest in refugee and asylum seeker issues.
