"Asylum Aid was founded in 1990 to complement the campaigning work of the organisation Rights and Justice. We were established to ensure that specialist legal advice and representation was accessible to individuals seeking asylum in the UK. In the twenty years since, we have represented and advised more than 30,000 people."

"Asylum Aid was the brainchild of a remarkable group of people: the philanthropist and newspaperman David Astor; Ernest Morton, a Jewish refugee from the Nazis who became a Quaker; and Mary Dines, an activist who had latterly worked for Rights and Justice ..." Alasdair Mackenzie, Asylum Aid 1990-2002 [1]
