Asylum seekers, refugees and detainees feel welcome, respected and understood as members of a caring community. They live in dignity with hope for the future: they can exercise their rights and have their cases fairly considered, they can access services to meet their needs, and they have opportunities to develop and share their talents.
Asylum Welcome tackles suffering and isolation among asylum seekers, refugees and detainees who have fled persecution and danger in their own countries and seek refuge in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
Common humanity: We are all one people, part of a local and a global community.
Social justice: A fair and compassionate society provides rights and opportunities for all people.
Voluntary action: Through enabling volunteers to give their time generously to help others, much can be achieved.
