Imagine being separated from your children indefinitely; that your living with them put them in danger.
Refugees are often forced to leave their children behind as they flee persecution. Many will never get the chance to be reunited with their family.
Our beneficiaries have fled persecution and often torture in their home country. Being reunited with their loved ones and establishing some security for their family can be a significant part of allowing refugees to rebuild their lives.
Following their claiming asylum refugees in the UK gain the right to family reunion. Many people are still a long way from seeing their family again. The process can be lengthy and complicated with the costs of flights and other expenses putting their family’s travel well out of reach.
We provide a non judgemental support service to help people through the family reunion process. This includes some funding, transport and helping with the arrangements for a refugee’s dependants to come to the UK.
