Background InformationAsylum Aid describe themselves as "an independent, national charity assisting refugees in the UK. We help the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people seeking asylum in the UK by giving them free legal advice and representing them in their asylum application. We also combine our advice work and policy work with campaigning for the fair treatment of refugees in this country." Since the 1990s, the issue of refugees and asylum seekers, often set within the wider debate over immigration, has become increasingly controversial in Britain, a signatory to the 1951 UN convention on the treatment of refugees. In 2000, Asylum Aid established the Refugee Women's Resource Project. Sources:; Charity Commission
