Our extensive library of reports, policy and research documents.

Learning and expertise

We have more than thirty years’ experience of working with and alongside people seeking refugee protection. We constantly evaluate our practice and contribute our experience and expertise to consultations, research projects and other calls for evidence. We are keen to share our learning as widely as possible and are always open to exploring ways of working collaboratively with others.

The resources below are free to download and organised by topic. If you need help finding information or would like to discuss our work please contact us.
