Asylum Welcome provides essential help to asylum seekers, refugees and detainees who have fled persecution and danger in their own countries and found refuge in Oxfordshire. We work with around 1,500 asylum seekers, refugees and their families every year.
Conditions for refugees and asylum seekers have been particularly difficult during the COVID-19 crisis, and we are seeing many more incidences of hardship, destitution and homelessness. We have been working hard to provide emergency support through food donations, hardship payments, and assistance with homelessness and other urgent needs. Our clients need support more than ever.
We offer immigration advice and other vital forms of support, and partner with refugees on their journey to independence through education, work and community building. We are a small team of staff and trustees that rely on our extraordinary 140+ volunteers and the generous support of the local community.
The city of Oxford has long welcomed people from around the world and celebrated the creative contributions that difference and diversity bring to the city and to humanity at large. One of Asylum Welcome’s core values is the promotion of independence. Our ethos is to enable people to build their lives here in Oxford with dignity, confidence and self-esteem, and to access their rights, develop their talents, feel welcomed and respected, and be active contributors to society.
Thank you for helping to make Oxford a safe, welcoming and accepting city. Thank you for caring about the refugees who arrive here without friends and for making them feel at home.

Thank you so much from everyone at Asylum Welcome and we wish you the best of luck!
