We recognise that we are only able to play a small part in the process of family reunion which can be drawn out, complicated and stressful. The Refugee Welcome Trust is unable to provide practical support or advice and reccommend you contact the relevant organisation if you need further help.
The Red Cross has a long tradition of providing practical and emotional support to vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers in the UK. As a leading humanitarian organisation, we often need to respond quickly and effectively to crises – for example, by supporting large-scale arrivals or providing emergency provisions for those facing severe hardship.
In 11 regions across England, Refugee Action works to:
* provide high quality reception, advice and information to refugees and asylum seekers
* promote the development of refugee communities
* improve access to employment and mainstream services, and enhance opportunities for refugees and asylum-seekers
* raise awareness, influence policy, and campaign for refugee rights
