DCRS has a dedicated team of co-ordinators, caseworkers, over 45 volunteers, and a Board of Trustees, who ensure that asylum seekers can seek sanctuary in Plymouth whilst the UK government decides on their claim.

Our aim is to promote independence, prevent destitution and encourage integration.

Our caseworkers are regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and are qualified to provide Level 1 immigration advice.

If you require our services please feel free to call us. Or drop in.

Don't just take our word for it

This place is important to people, especially when they first arrive.

I need routine in my life as I have so many thoughts in my head...thank you, boss, for taking us out on all these activities, otherwise I would be sitting in my room on my own not being able to do anything about my case. Being able to get out and do different things is keeping me happy.

I have not been on a bike for years; this is so much fun!...being able to get out of the street and come and see the river and speak together felt really freeing.

The girls would really like to get out of the house and enjoy their summer holidays...these trips have been good for me and the girls and my family, we have done activities that we have never done, and the girls have learnt about things

Thank you, Craig, for helping me feel close to the land again!...I am so glad today that God has helped me to gain status and to share it with everyone.

I am very grateful to Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support (DCRS), Suvi especially, for their invaluable help and guidance during my asylum process. They provided me with practical assistance, legal advice, emotional support, and educational opportunities. They also created a welcoming and friendly space where I could meet other asylum seekers and refugees, and feel part of a community. The staff and volunteers at DCRS are kind, understanding, and professional. They always treated me with respect and dignity, and listened to my needs and concerns. They also advocated for my rights and helped me access other services and resources. I would highly recommend DCRS to anyone who is seeking sanctuary in Plymouth or the surrounding areas. They are a wonderful organisation that makes a positive difference in people’s lives
