The Ay family, Kurdish refugees from Turkey, win six-figure payout from the Home Office eight years after childhood ordeal.

A Message From Our Patron


Last year I visited the Barnet Refugee Service, and met the trustees, the staff and some of the volunteers and clients.  I was moved and impressed by the real difference BRS has made to so many lives.
