Welcome Churches exists to see no refugee alone in the UK.

Welsh Refugee Council

We believe everyone should be entitled to live with dignity. Asylum seekers should have safe, comfortable, accommodation whilst they wait for a decision on their asylum claim.

As most asylum seekers are not permitted to work, they are reliant on Home Office support and accommodation. But for asylum seekers, there are many barriers to receiving the limited support they are rightly entitled to. We ensure, wherever possible, that people access this support so [...]
