SWVG campaigns to improve the lives of asylum seekers and refugees, drawing from our direct practical experience working with asylum seekers and refugees in Southampton and Winchester.
Our campaigns may involve contact with our local MPs and political parties, letters and articles for newspapers, appearing on radio and TV, and joining demonstrations.
We also participate in national campaigns (such as those led by Refugee Action and the Refugee Council) where these are relevant to our local issues.
You can read an evidenced based report produced by SWVG on the asylum system here for detailed analysis of the current challenges
If you are interested in supporting any of our campaigns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
