Welcome to Reading Refugee Support Group
Reading Refugee Support Group helps refugees and asylum seekers to rebuild their lives in Berkshire.
Started in 1994 by a group of refugees wanting to support each other, we now provide services to hundreds of families and individuals across all of Berkshire.
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 been tortured. Some have No Recourse to Public Funds.
We provide a safe space, OISC accredited advice, practical support 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 issues refugees face.
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.
We provide a safe space and promote integration with our Drop In centre, social activities, our refugee football team and more…
