The Refugee Council is one of the leading charities in the UK working directly with refugees, and supporting them to rebuild their lives. The charity also speaks up for refugees using its direct work as an evidence base, and ensures refugees have a stronger and more influential voice in decisions that will affect them. The organisation works with a range of partners and in collaboration to ensure it can best support its clients.
Emma Thompson is a patron of the charity, and wrote:
“I am delighted to become a patron of the Refugee Council. I have been a supporter for a number of years and have seen at first hand the great work the Refugee Council does. Helping out at the Festive Party has given me an opportunity to see how remarkable and resilient asylum seekers and refugees are and how they deserve respect and understanding.
It’s only when we imagine for ourselves what it would be like to run from state terror, torture, rape, the destruction of our homes and families that we can understand how vital it would be to find a place that welcomed us and tried to heal our wounds. Fortunately the Refugee Council provides such a place."
