Our trustees play a vital role in making sure that Asylum Justice achieves its goals. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity. They also ensure that Asylum Justice has a clear strategy and that our work and objectives are in line with our vision.
Board members have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals and in the interests of our organisation’s aims and values.
Asylum Justice is the only charitable organisation in Wales, and one of only two operating in the UK, offering free legal advice and representation to asylum seekers, recognised refugees and other vulnerable migrants. No other organisation provides this service in Wales and consequently Asylum Justice is the last and only place that people can turn to for help when they fear for their lives or the safety of their family in their country of origin.
This is a crucial time for the human rights and migration justice movement in the UK, and Asylum Justice is working on the front line. To match the quick growth of our organisation, we need people from a variety of backgrounds – especially those with a lived experience of migration and/or the asylum system – to join our growing team.
