Who are we?
We are a registered charity offering welcome and support to refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants in need of extra help in the local area.
Who do we help?
The people our charity supports include refugee families from Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine, all of whom have arrived on government schemes since 2016. We also offer welcome and basic help to those who have sought refugee here from many other troubled countries as well as Syria and Afghanistan including Iran, Sudan, Eritrea, Yemen and Congo, making their journeys.
How do we help?
We provide clothes, shoes and other essential items for those arriving with very little. We also run informal English classes to help refugees and asylum seekers communicate and integrate in the local community. We provide limited essential household items for newly settled refugee families including Ukrainian refugees moving out from host accommodation into independent housing.
