What we do

  • Provide rapid financial assistance by way of grants to ensure immediate relief, resettlement and requalification at the time of greatest need.
  • Evaluate all funding requests rigorously to ensure precious funds are provided to the most deserving cases. This is achieved by exercising expertise built up over many years and by utilising our network of over 50 different distribution channels including human rights organisations, refugee groups, community organisations, universities and solicitors.
  • Since our inception in 1962, we have provided support to more than ten thousand prisoners of conscience and their dependants and distributed more than £4 million.
