Refugee Resource aims to relieve distress, improve well-being and facilitate the integration of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants – mainly in Oxfordshire – by providing psychological, social and practical support.


We currently deliver the following core services as a means of meeting this overall aim:

  • Specialised counselling and psychotherapy (with interpreters when necessary)
  • Mentoring
  • A Women’s Service
  • Services for men including a football group
  • Advice and advocacy

We are committed to:

  • Providing a confidential service to refugees and asylum seekers
  • Ensuring asylum seekers and refugees know what their rights in the UK are
  • Providing services and projects in direct response to needs identified by refugees and asylum seekers
  • Involving refugees and asylum seekers in developing and running the services
  • Working in partnership with other organisations so that we meet needs in a coordinated way, learn from others, and share what we learn
  • Working with the local media to ensure accurate and fair reporting of issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers
  • Offering training and consultation in psychosocial issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers to people working with them.

In addition to the above values we will strive to:

  • Continue to learn from our clients in order to provide high quality and responsive services
  • Invest in our staff’s development and career progression
  • Enhance our local and regional standing and reputation

All our activity will be predicated on an approach that will involve:

  • Supporting service users in exercising their rights and participating in local decision-making and democratic activities
  • Encouraging and developing the contribution made by volunteers in sustaining services and facilities
  • Encouraging a sustainable living standard among refugees and asylum seekers through employment and income generation
  • Improving access to services and facilities
  • Advocating on behalf of our client group to ensure equality of services to all who live and work in Oxfordshire
