Sanctuary Seekers’ Unit

Volunteering and resources

The first step is to educate yourself in the basics. For example, what is the difference between an asylum seeker and a refugee?
The best place to start is probably the Refugee Council which provides accessible but detailed information on all aspects of sanctuary in the UK.

For a more global perspective, the UN Refugee Agency is a useful resource. You can also complete this MOOC from Amnesty International: Human Rights: The Rights of Refugees.
