People coming to Manchester to seek sanctuary are welcomed and treated with dignity and respect
Our mission is to help and support refugees and asylum seekers who've fled conflict and persecution. We get them the basic support they need to live again with dignity and respect. Then we help them build safe, happy and productive lives in Manchester.Why the community needs us
MRSN is a lively, thriving organisation providing support to over 60 refugees each week from our friendly drop in Centre based in Moss Side. Our services are tailored to the needs of refugees, We understand the specific difficulties they face, which include language barriers, cultural issues, and lack of familiarity with British systems. Because of our experience in this field we also understand the interaction between immigration status and welfare and and housing entitlements.Our impact on the community
