Reading Refugee Support Group

Reading Refugee Support Group helps refugees and asylum seekers to rebuild their lives in Berkshire.

Started in 1994 by a group of refugees, we now provide services to hundreds of families and individuals across all of Berkshire.

We support refugees from more than 50 countries who have escaped war, violence, persecution and modern slavery. Many have been victims of human trafficking. Some have been tortured. Some have No Recourse to Public Funds.

We provide a safe space, OISC accredited advice, practical support and social activities. We run English classes and assist with accessing education, volunteering and employment. We empower our community to access their rights, signpost to specialised services, and campaign and raise awareness of issues refugees face.
