We provide support with the family reunion process through arranging travel and providing additional support with arrangements. We hope to be able to speed up the process and make it less stressful for our client and their family.
Throughout the process the Refugee Welcome Trust is keen to maintain two core values:
1. Treating family reunion as a right not a privilege
2. Making the process as simple as possible for the client
In addition to our limited family reunion service we also offer a travel service to help people who are able to find funding elsewhere. To use the travel service you do not necessarily need to have refugee status and other forms of status are accepted.
Founded in 2010 to help meet the need for family reunion funding for UK refugees we are run entirely by volunteers. We are a unique and specialist service developed in response to a need in the sector.
As we provide a targeted service we work with partner organisations to ensure that the longer term needs of the family are met. This includes counselling, help with integration and practical advice.
As a young and small charity we are able to work quickly and flexibly to meet our client’s needs. As we do not have any paid staff or offices we are also able to ensure that 100% of your donation goes straight to supporting families.
