Our priorities

Migrants and refugees

What would good look like?

A country in which people who migrate, are refugees or seeking asylum are made welcome, treated fairly, and supported to maximise their potential living in the UK.

Individuals arriving in the UK must navigate a complex and often unhelpful legal and policy environment. Their experiences can include status insecurity, enforced destitution, and indefinite detention, along with significant and related impacts on physical and mental health. Even those with secure immigration status often continue to face considerable barriers to integration in terms of housing provision, health services, language support, access to employment and more.

Civil society organisations offer a range of interventions to support people who migrate, are refugees or seeking asylum, while operating in a difficult context. We recognise these challenges, and we support organisations who are working to respond to immediate needs within communities, as well as those advocating for a consistent and fair policy environment.

The next application deadline is:

The A B Charitable Trust is happy to provide funding for core costs.
