The Cornwall Refugee Resource Network is a registered charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) working to support refugees and asylum seekers, as well as those working with refugees and asylum seekers, in Cornwall and beyond. Through the activities of our members and overseen by our trustees, we aim to:
1) Promote social inclusion 2) Relieve financial hardship 3) Work in partnership to provide aid and assistance to refugees and asylum seekers beyond the United Kingdom (e.g. in France, Belgium and Greece) 4) Raise awareness in Cornwall about human rights, equality and other issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers 5) Promote and support local community sponsorship initiatives
Our members have worked on a wide range of initiatives and bring with them a variety of different skills and expertise, which gives us a broad collective knowledge base and means we are well placed to help other groups interested in supporting our vision. We seek to work in partnership with other like-minded networks and organisations in the South West and other rural regions.
