Vision

In 2019, the Board of Trustees adopted a new Vision and Strategic Plan:

Our Vision

A society where refugees, asylum seekers and migrants are welcomed, feel safe, live free of poverty and are able to positively build their lives.  A society where everyone’s rights and entitlements are respected.

Our Aims and Ways of Working

1.      We work in partnership with others to combat poverty and destitution and to promote social and legal justice:
We will use an EARLY ACTION approach to working with asylum seekers, refugees and migrants; we will focus on preventing and de-escalating crises through the provision of good quality, early advice, support and information using methods which build resilience, support networks and well-being; as an organisation we will provide stability and strive for sustainability.

2.     We empower people; promote inclusion and equality of opportunity through the breaking down of societal barriers:
We will EMPOWER asylum seekers, refugees and migrants by giving them information and confidence to access their rights and entitlements and to build their lives; asylum seekers, refugees and migrants will have opportunities to develop and share their talents; we will provide support for them to learn and develop personal and professional transferable skills through a range of opportunities both within and outside of the organisation.

3.    We ensure the rights and entitlements of asylum seekers, refugees and migrants are respected:
We use ADVOCACY to challenge injustice for individuals, and for all asylum seekers, refugees and migrants; members will receive high quality and timely advice aimed at achieving their rights and entitlements and a fair outcome; we will lead and support campaigns for better treatment and for a fairer society; we will never accept the status quo.
