About The Harbour Project For Swindon Refugees And Asylum Seekers

Charity number: 1097227

We offer a safe place for refugees and asylum seekers new to Swindon, primarily through our drop-in, which is open Monday to Friday 11am to 2pm. Our visitors come from all over the world, from war-torn countries, or places of ongoing internal conflict, such as Eritrea, Sudan, Syria and Pakistan. They are usually far from friends and family with very little understanding of life in the UK. The Harbour seeks to fill that need by giving friendly, informal and, above all, practical support. As a volunteer-run organisation, we depend hugely on our dedicated and knowledgeable team of volunteers, without whom most of our work wouldn't happen. In addition to offering advice and guidance, our volunteers also run English and maths classes, train our football team, help with art, cookery, sewing and other recreational activities. In the past 12 months, we have welcomed over 350 men, women and children through our doors from more than 50 different countries. One of the things that makes the Harbour so special is that despite the disparate ? and often desperate ? situations from which people have come, there is a willingness to put past difficulties aside and a desire to make a fresh start in a new country.
