SAFE PASSAGE

Every person fleeing persecution should be able to access safe and legal routes to sanctuary but today millions of people fleeing conflict are trapped in harm’s way with no safe and legal way out.

Children are stuffed into suffocating lorries, families climb into sinking boats, desperate adults try to scale barbed wire fences. All in pursuit of something they often already have a legal right to: whether it’s to reach their family members or to be resettled away from conflict because of their extreme need.

OUR VISION

Our vision is a world in which every person fleeing persecution can access publicly-supported safe and legal routes to a place where they can lead a full and dignified life.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to open up safe and legal routes to protection through advocacy, community organising and legal work. We then support people’s first steps to rebuilding their lives in the UK.

OUR VALUES

We are ground breaking, determined, and compassionate.
