Community Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers (CARAS) is a community outreach charity that offers support and advice to people of refugee background.
They have a range of group activities that support people of all ages to develop their English skills (classes for women and young people), access services and opportunities, build supportive social networks and to feel welcomed. We run women’s groups, advice sessions and youth activities.

Wellbeing and resilience work delivered in a group setting - programmes offered range from ARISE and PUTP.

Though the group work often covers risk focused discussions, this service should not replace the work of an Independent Domestic Violence Advisor or case worker. Please note that WRAP is not a counselling service. This service has a waiting list.

Our Counselling service provides emotional support for young people, aged 14-24 who experienced domestic violence directly or indirectly.
