Our Charitable Objectives as described in our Memorandum and Articles of Association are:
1. To advance education and relieve financial hardship amongst those seeking asylum and those granted refugee status by the provision of advice, training and support.
2. To advance the education of the public in general about the issues relating to refugees and those seeking asylum.
3. To advance the Christian religion by living out our love for neighbour and bringing the stranger of any or no faith into our community.*
All work of the charitable company has been dedicated to the furtherance of these objectives.
* We welcome people of all faiths and none and have no religious affiliation. There is no requirement for personnel or clients to be of any particular faith. Our work has no association with any religious practices. Our centre began in 1997 in a church and the reference to Christianity in our Charitable Objectives remains as a legacy of our early beginnings. We are proud to have partnerships with several local churches and many other organisations which represent people of all religions.
