Our values

DSC_0340Since 1999, West End Refugee Service (WERS) has empowered men and women, whose futures have been irrevocably changed by past events in their home country, to regain some control over their lives.  For the most vulnerable, perhaps those who survived torture, imprisonment or who have lost those closest to them, a period of supported adjustment and recovery is needed before there can be any thoughts of developing or regaining skills through study, volunteering or employment.  For some, whose physical health, well-being, confidence and self esteem may have been severely damaged, the first stage can last many months, or even years.  Others, showing remarkable resilience, are ready to move forward in a relatively short time.

WERS’ strength lies in its focus on one-to-one working and individualised support packages which allow clients to progress at their own pace.
