“…improving English, and you get more confident. Better than in English classes.” “Someone is listening to me”​

‘I can be myself, I can talk about my problems, it is confidential and I can trust’​

‘It is a liberating experience to be with someone who wants to be there, not someone whose job it is, someone who listens and looks to solve problems’ ​

15 Runners brave the rain at the Oxford Half Marathon

We had 15 runners take part in the Oxford Half Marathon on 13th October 2019, raising much-needed funds for Refugee Resource.

Runners who took part included a client, a counselling supervisor and a volunteer! We are so grateful to them for all of their hard work in training, running (in very rainy conditions!) and fundraising on our behalf. We are also grateful to everyone who came out and cheered for them - thank you!

Women's Service create FGM film

The Women's Service, between April 2018 and September 2019, held nine FGM workshops on a wide range of topics including the physical and mental health impacts of FGM, accessing medical and community support, safeguarding, partnership working between communities and professionals, and advocacy and campaigning.   The women involved felt that they had gained vital knowledge and awareness around FGM and all reported increased confidence in talking about it to their families, friends and the wider community. 


After the final session, WEA facilitated the making of a film with interviews with the Women’s Service Coordinator and many of the participants.

Refugee Resource Annual Report 2018/19

We have published our  Annual Report for 2018/19. Last year was very busy at Refugee Resource with more and more demand for our services.  In our last financial year, we supported over 350 clients from across 43 nationalities: 99 people receiving counselling and psychotherapy; 56 women actively engaged with the weekly women's group; 31 people who have been supported by a mentor; and 105 clients received advice and advocacy support. 

Winter Appeal

For destitute refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in Oxfordshire winter time is difficult. The cold weather makes their situation even more desperate, as they struggle to find warmth and adequate food. Refugee Resource supports those most in need in purchasing basic essentials such as hats and gloves, food for those who have not eaten, and essential medicines. Read more about this here.

If you would like to make a donation to support our work in general, or our hardship fund in particular, please do via the button below. If you would like your donation to go specifically to the hardship fund please state ‘winter appeal’ in the Donation Comment box on the Everyclick form. Thank you.
