Welcome to Reading Refugee Support Group
Reading Refugee Support Group has been helping refugees and people seeking asylum to rebuild their lives in Berkshire since 1994. We support refugees from more than 50 countries who have escaped war, violence, persecution and modern slavery. Many have been victims of human trafficking. Some have No Recourse to Public Funds. Some have been tortured.
We offer refugees and people seeking asylum a safe space, OISC accredited advice, practical help and social activities. We run English classes and assist with accessing education, volunteering and employment. We empower our community to access their rights, signpost to specialised services, and campaign and raise awareness of the needs of refugees in Berkshire.
Our OISC accredited Solicitor and Caseworkers offer free confidential advice and practical support.
We hold English classes, help Refugees find work and a run a Homework Club for kids.
