Refugee Survival Trust

Charity registered in Scotland SC024328

The Refugee Survival Trust was set up in 1996 by a number of concerned individuals as a reaction to the problem of refugees and asylum seekers being made destitute in Scotland. RST has a small team of dedicated staff and relies on continued support and expertise of its Board of Directors and a committed team of more than 50 active volunteers. The vision of RST is that all refugees and asylum seekers in Scotland receive just and respectful treatment and support appropriate to their needs and our mission is to do everything within our available resources and powers to achieve that vision by enabling and supporting asylum seekers and refugees in need. Our work focuses on four key areas: destitution, integration, awareness raising and research and policy work.
