Welsh Refugee Council
Wales is a Nation of Sanctuary

Welsh Refugee Council

We have been empowering asylum seekers and refugees to build new futures in Wales for 32 years. We deliver direct specialist support to our clients from our offices in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea and Wrexham. We work with community, voluntary and statutory sector partners to create a society where there is respect and equality for all.

“Welsh Refugee Council is the beginning of the end of the trauma. It is where the running stops and recovery starts.”

We support asylum seekers and refugees at the most critical points of their lives. Our work enables people who have been forced to seek sanctuary to find their feet and begin building a life in Wales. Through our work we help people find a place to stay, work to support themselves, access to English classes, legal advice and community networks so they have what they need to begin again in their new homes.
