Welcome to the Refugee Advice and Support Centre

The Refugee Advice and Support Centre (RASC) works to enable refugees and asylum seeking communities in West London to lead healthy, fulfilled and independent lives.

The centre has been running for 15 years and has developed to provide a range of service to meet the needs of the community. Our services include ESOL and IT classes and advice and guidance. We also have a strong focus on youth volunteering and many of our projects are run by volunteers.
