Support we provide
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.
