RAPAR (Refugee and Asylum Seeker Participatory Action Research) is a Manchester-based human rights organisation working with people, both locally and further afield, who are at risk of having their rights denied.
RAPAR is a frontline organisation, responding to needs that are continually presented. We challenge and act on situations with people whose human rights are being threatened. We do this through our CASEWORK.
RAPAR works with people to help them to help themselves, to support them should they wish to work together rather than in isolation, to release their abilities to understand and find solutions to the situations they and others face, and to develop and empower themselves and others as individuals and as communities. We do this through our COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.
RAPAR develops and delivers cutting-edge participatory research and learning opportunites nationally and internationally, ensuring that our work takes place within a context of continual action learning, research and development. We do this through our RESEARCH.
