We are committed to:

  • Providing a confidential service to refugees and asylum seekers

  • Ensuring asylum seekers and refugees know what their rights in the UK are

  • Providing services and projects in direct response to needs identified by refugees and asylum seekers

  • Involving refugees and asylum seekers in developing and running the services

  • Working in partnership with other organisations so that we meet needs in a coordinated way, learn from others, and share what we learn

  • Working with the local media to ensure accurate and fair reporting of issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers

  • Offering training and consultation in psychosocial issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers to people working with them.

In addition to the above values we will strive to:

  • Continue to learn from our clients in order to provide high quality and responsive services

  • Invest in our staff’s development and career progression

  • Enhance our local and regional standing and reputation

All our activity will be predicated on an approach that will involve:

  • Supporting service users in exercising their rights and participating in local decision-making and democratic activities

  • Encouraging and developing the contribution made by volunteers in sustaining services and facilities

  • Encouraging a sustainable living standard among refugees and asylum seekers through employment and income generation

  • Improving access to services and facilities

  • Advocating on behalf of our client group to ensure equality of services to all who live and work in Oxfordshire.
