JRS aspires to be hospitality in action. We walk alongside, accompany and offer hospitality to the most vulnerable, those "at the frontiers of humanity", giving priority to situations of great need, in places where a more universal good may be achieved, and to needs to which others are not attending.

JRS is committed to a justice that empowers refugees to become "people with a voice of their own", working together with them to challenge systems that deny human rights.

JRS aims to give hope to refugees and other forcibly displaced persons. We provide a spiritual and practical response to their plight.

JRS is a work of the Society of Jesus, carrying out the Society's mission of faith and justice through humble and respectful service in solidarity with refugees from diverse cultures, nationalities and religions.

JRS upholds the principle of subsidiarity, endeavouring to be openly accountable for its work and transparent in its decision-making. We work in partnership with other religious congregations, humanitarian organisations and with refugees themselves, encouraging co-responsibility, discernment and participative decision-making.
