Launceston Refugee Support Group (LRSG) started in early 2017 - you can read about the origins and history of the group under the About | History menu.

We are formally constituted as a charity registered in the UK with charity number 1178812.

We have a board of five trustees, and four officer posts. Trustees are rotated with two standing down each year, they can stand for re-election unlimited times. Officers are formally elected at each AGM (usually in October/November) and do not have to be trustees. The constitution is available for download.

Current, as of January 2024, Officers are:

  • Chair: Francis Tippet
  • Secretary: Bill Glen
  • Treasurer: Janet Rogerson

Business meetings are held, as and when needed, online by zoom. Notices of meetings and agendas are send out by email.

Occasional special events are organised for fundraising or general community engagement - details will be posted on the Facebook page and on the email list.
