Our Mission

At GARAS (Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers) we offer support to those seeking asylum in Gloucestershire, welcoming them when they arrive, advocating for them in their daily struggles, supporting them if they face being sent back as well as helping them adjust to their long term future if they are recognised as refugees.

week 2

May 18, 2017

Three weeks to go.

The second main area of concern is in the topic of Immigration.We would hope that any incoming Government will maintain the pledge to bring in Syrians and other vulnerable Refugees caught in dreadful circumstances and that this be increased. In order to assist this to happen, measures need to be in place to encourage more landlords to assist in providing accommodation, for example to those on resettlement schemes.

Ask your parliamentary candidates to pledge to continue the Syrian Vulnerable People’s Vulnerable Scheme, to remember and assist other refugees around the world and to facilitate this to happen by ensuring they can access housing, which can be an obstacle to the scheme progressing.
