UNHCR’s core mandate is to ensure the international protection of uprooted people worldwide and is the leading global agency for the protection of people fleeing conflict persecution, or natural disaster around the world.
As a global organisation with more than 70 years’ experience, UNHCR is dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people. The UN Refugee Agency is the only organisation with the position, global reach, expertise and history that can protect and empower refugees around the world.
UK for UNHCR is the UN Refugee Agency’s national charity partner for the UK. We build solidarity, create partnerships and raise funds across the UK. Through support from private partners, we are able to inject new and vital energy into finding responses to refugee needs.
