Refugee Action Kingston is a local charity, providing advice and support for refugees and asylum seekers in the Kingston area.
Our advice service will be closed on Thursday 8th and Thursday 15th August due to staff annual leave.
We hope this website will help you to find out more about us, whether you are a refugee or asylum seeker wanting to access our services, if you want to refer someone to us or if you are interested in volunteering.

On World Refugee Day, 20th June 2016, we celebrated 25 years of welcoming refugees and asylum seekers to Kingston, through performances, testimonials and dance.
Young people's summer project
Each summer we run a 2 week project of activities for children, many of whom are newly arrived and benefit from gaining language skills and making friends before starting school.
