Our Vision

The staff and volunteers at Reading Refugee Support Group support the spirit of the 1951 Convention on Refugees to which Britain is a signatory. We are committed to reducing the poverty, suffering and social isolation of people who have already faced unimaginable persecution and hardship. We believe in social justice, common humanity and a shared responsibility to protect and help the most vulnerable people in our society.

Our vision is for an inclusive society where refugees and asylum seekers of all cultural backgrounds are treated with the same dignity and respect that we all enjoy; where their essential needs are met; and where they are entitled, enabled and confident to engage with and benefit from the wider community.
