GARAS provides a drop-in service to asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants. Here we provide level one advice in asylum and immigration. We help clients through their asylum claim, and into their settled lives. We provide ESOL classes three days a week to coincide with our drop-in days. One day a week we have psychotherapy for those affected by their experiences. GARAS is also the main organisation supporting families in Gloucestershire here on the Vulnerable Peoples Resettlement Scheme.
