The latest events, news, blogs and publications from JRS UK
Join us for the latest in our Accompaniment in Action series, in which we will take a look back at a year of operations for our Emergency Response Team. With the first lockdown in March 2020, JRS UK was forced to take our Day Centre on the road, making deliveries to our refugee friends wherever they were spending lockdown. We will be joined by some of the staff, volunteers and refugee friends to share the amazing work that has been going on to continue our mission to accompany through the most difficult of years.
Wednesday 24th March @ 6:30pm

We advocate on behalf of those we accompany and serve, and we do so with their participation. For this reason, our advocacy at JRS UK focuses on issues relating to detention and destitution, as these are the focus of our services.
JRS UK advocate for policies that protect refugees and allow them to flourish. Much of our current policy and advocacy work focuses around challenging the ‘hostile environment agenda’.
We are always looking for physical donations to support our services to refugees – from toiletries to art materials, can you help? The list is updated regularly.
