Supporting organisations


The Refugee Advocacy Network is supported by a broad range of organisations, including church groups, community groups, political activists, trade unions and many others – right across the political spectrum.

If your organisation agrees with our statement of purpose we would love it if you gave your support. To do so just get in touch and let us know.  We hope to build up a large number of organisations who are ongoing supporters of the network.
