Refugee Resource's 2022 Statement on the Recent Developments
“Most people who have sought asylum, will have been through trauma, whether that’s trauma in the country that they’ve come from or trauma when travelling to the UK. So the very idea of feeling as though you’re in a safe place and then having what was an attack on that kind of place of safety, we know will cause great horror for lots of people.” Jenni Regan, chief executive of IMIX
At Refugee Resource, we are deeply troubled by the recent developments and rise of hostility towards refugees, the attack on the processing centre in Dover and the appalling living condition for asylum seekers in Manston migrant centre. We join other charities in calling for an end to divisive rhetoric on asylum seekers. Asylum seekers arriving in the UK must be treated with the decency and respect that all human beings deserve.
We recognise that such events might be triggering and deeply unsettling for many of our clients. In our capacity as a charity focused on the mental health of refugees, we will con-tinue to support our clients and offer them our full range of therapeutic services while ad-vocating for their mental health and general wellbeing.
