Supporting refugees

refugee support

The Salvation Army has a long history offering practical support to people fleeing conflict, persecution and violence.

Just as we did over 120 years ago, today we are adapting and responding to the rise of displaced people worldwide caused by conflicts such as in Syria or other humanitarian disasters.

We put our faith into action by working independently and in local partnerships to support refugees and asylum seekers after fleeing traumatic situations. We are actively involved with both refugee resettlement programmes and asylum seeker support through to campaigning so asylum seekers have the right to work.

Welcoming the Stranger

We recognise migration is complex.

As part of Refugee Week 2021, we held a webinar panel conversation to help people explore the ethical, social, political and theological issues surrounding this topic.
