Our mission statement

St Helens Borough Council, working alongside various charities and external agencies, thrives to make the borough a safe place for refugees and asylum seekers by:

  • Increasing the awareness about the circumstances of asylum seekers and refugees by helping to foster positive relationships with the local community.
  • Supporting refugees by treating them with respect and dignity so that they receive the same care and access to opportunities as any other person in the community.
  • Empowering asylum seekers and refugees to be self-sufficient so that they can be recognised as valuable contributors to the community and the economy.
  • Seeking to address the service gaps in support networks by quickly addressing unmet and emerging needs.
