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.

Giving Tuesday

November 27, 2018

Today has become known as Giving Tuesday, and opportunity after Black Friday to think about giving and donating between the spending spree of Black Friday and the costs of Christmas.

Giving comes in so many ways, so I want to take the opportunity to thank our wonderful volunteers who give of themselves week after week out of their own generosity of time to support the work of GARAS, and they do that in so many varied ways.

I also want to thank our committed donors whose on going and regular giving frees us up to assist clients in different ways.

And thank you to all who will take the opportunity today to give to GARAS, all giving warms our hearts and encourages us to keep going.

Thank you all so much, you are wonderful people.
