What we do

Slough Refugee Support (SRS) extends a welcome and practical help to 150 + refugees and asylum seekers each year both in Slough and across the Thames Valley.

At present, our beneficiaries represent 32 countries and between them speak more than 24 languages.

Refugees are people who are seeking to rebuild their lives in a new country after fleeing from violence and fear.  

They often need support  to help them achieve their rights and to care for themselves and their families in a new country.  Because their needs vary, SRS works with them as individuals and families.


Practical advice and help given by SRS includes:

  • OISC advice and support up to Level 2/3

  • Thames Valley Immigration Alliance - Download Referral Form

  • Legal Support by a Solicitor

  • Asylum Support (NASS)

  • Accessing initial Benefits

  • How to access Health and Education Services

  • Family Support Work

  • Job search for those eligible to work

  • English Language Classes

  • Sewing Classes, with creche support
