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.

Christmas shopping – donations

November 24, 2014

When doing your online Christmas, or other, shopping from major retailers, why not donate to GARAS in the process?  At no additional cost to yourself, you can register at easy fundraising with the proceeds to go to GARAS and then click on every time you make subsequent purchases.  It couldn’t be simpler.  So far we have raised over £100 for GARAS.  Please help us get even more, as we work with vulnerable asylum seekers, refugees and other migrants in Gloucestershire.

Spirit of Philanthropy

September 26, 2013

A letter is on its way to Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, suggesting that he might like to put his money where is mouth is regarding philanthropy and suggest he and his ‘super rich’ contacts donate some of their surplus cash to GARAS.  Have you seen his latest comments which tie in with his visit from the Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg?

If you, dear reader, would like to donate to the work of GARAS, helping refugees, asylum seekers, and other migrants in Gloucestershire, please visit our website for information on how you can contact us and give financially as a one off, set up a standing order, or donate other items to support our work.  All donations gratefully received!
