At our group meeting of 18/04/16 the following new name and aims were approved:

The Ashburton Refugee Support Network is a local group set up in response to the current refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe. We want to be a part of a society that treats its most vulnerable with humanity, solidarity and compassion. Through collaboration, discussion and practical action we will:

  1. Lobby local and national government to improve the UK’s response to the refugee crisis.
  2. Raise awareness of the challenges facing refugees and asylum seekers.
  3. Engage with refugees and asylum seekers, both in the UK and overseas, to offer friendship and support.


To get involved or express your support contact us, join our facebook group or follow @Ash_Refuge on twitter.
