About JRS UK

JRS UK runs a Day Centre, creative and therapeutic activities, a small hosting scheme (At Home) and a specialist legal advice service for destitute asylum seekers; we also run a detention outreach service to Heathrow IRC, including a befriending service, as well as a peer support group for people who have experienced detention. JRS UK undertakes research for advocacy to policy makers, alongside communications and outreach, to raise awareness of the real situation facing asylum seekers and to argue for a change in policies that undermine their dignity and a just society.

JRS’ distinctive ethos of accompaniment radically alters the beneficiary–service provider relationship and affects all that we do: we place a high value on coming to know refugees as people with gifts and personalities, not only defined by their situation in immigration law. Through our services, we seek to offer specialist intervention and respond to practical needs, but also to create spaces of hospitality, community, friendship and participation, which enable refugees to heal and shape their own future. Our advocacy, communications and outreach are similarly rooted in accompaniment, beginning with listening to the experience of refugees, bringing opportunities for their experience and voices to be heard, understood and create change.

JRS UK is based in the Hurtado Jesuit Centre in Wapping, East London. It currently has 20 full and part-time staff and around 140 active volunteers, drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities, generations and beliefs, including refugees, young graduates and vowed members of religious congregations; this diversity of perspectives and experience is a source of particular strength for our mission. We work collaboratively with JRS offices around the world, Jesuit works in the UK and many others in the Church and secular refugee sector.

JRS UK is a project of the British Jesuits’ Charitable Trust (TRCP) and shares the same charity number (230165). JRS UK has an annual expenditure in the region of 1.2 million.
