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.

We are grateful each year for Harvest donations that come in from Churches and schools across the county.  Our food stocks are currently really low. These really do make a difference for people in need.   Whether it be refugees waiting for documents to come through; to failed asylum seekers with no support, to individuals and young families we are working with who have fallen through the net. Please download and print out our Harvest ‘shopping list‘ for ideas of what is most needed.  Donations can be dropped off at the GARAS building Monday to Friday, between 9:30am and 5:30pm.  (For dropping off, you can park in the doctor’s surgery at the back.  If you let us know, we can open the double doors at the back for unloading.)  Thank you so much.
