Our Values expressed in CSR
Laughlin Consultancy believes in business as a force for good in society. As well as helping the economy and minimising our carbon footprint, this means reinvesting a portion of our profits into charities that are making a positive difference.
How our chosen charity helps the community
The Sanctuary runs a range of activities throughout the week. There are English classes for men and women as well as drop-in services offering help in accessing other services and advocacy. There is also a Mums and Toddlers group, a Games Night for men and an after-school Youth Club, which provides a safe space for unaccompanied minors to socialise with local young people and access appropriate support.
The Sanctuary also provides a weekly meal as part of a drop-in café open to both men and women, and we organise a number of other occasional social events and opportunities for asylum seekers and refugees throughout the year, including trips to other parts of Wales, often in partnership with other organisations that support refugees and asylum seekers. Our activities are open to people of all faiths (and none) and we are pleased to welcome participants from all around the world, from many different cultures and backgrounds.
We work in partnership with other agencies such as Oxfam, Tearfund, Seedbed Christian Community Trust, the Welsh Refugee Council, Aneurin Bevan Health Board, Newport City Council and the British Red Cross.
