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.

The Euros

June 15, 2021

This week the ‘Euros’ begin: the football tournament kicks off, having been postponed from 2020. But for Europeans living in Britain, they have until the end of the month to apply for pre-settled or settled status, following our withdrawal from the European Union. If you are European and haven’t already applied for this, or know someone who may need to be reminded to do so, please would you encourage them to contact GARAS or Citizens Advice asap, before the 30 June 2021 deadline? Without doing so, loss of right to work, and difficulties secure housing and healthcare will ensue. Thank you.
