We offer a warm welcome and hospitality, support and friendship to refugees and asylum seekers. We do this through a range of befriending and support and empowerment initiatives. Our groups and activities build strong and positive relationships and are springboards for much more support for many of our participants. We create welcoming and safe spaces for participants to feel valued, listened to and respected.
