There are a host of practical things you can do to get involved
We'd love to have your help. Here are just some examples of how you could make a difference:
  • Resettling and supporting refugees
  • Offer accommodation as a landlord (paid at local authority rates)
  • Foster a child refugee
  • Help with coordinating the resettlement process
  • Help with campaigning and profile raising
  • We are asking local schools to become 'refugee welcome schools'. Could you provide links to educational establishments?
  • Working with different faith and community groups
  • Get your company/business involved
  • Personal support: advocacy and assistance e.g. applying for schools, registering at a surgery
  • Skills: English language tuition, Arabic translation/ interpretation, trade skills
  • Pledge goods such as groceries, furniture, household and electrical goods, clothing, toys, baby/toddler equipment, stationery, a haircut
  • Provide transport: Van or car use, bicycles/bicycle maintenance, help with removals

If you think you have resources or skills that would be useful or would like to get involved but don't know how, please let us know . We'd love to hear from you.
