Please support this critical service by donating today


We offer a comprehensive service to refugees under various re-settlement schemes. Our aim is for each family we help to feel part of their community, building their confidence, empowering them to become independent and build a new life in UK.

Our team assist with:

  • Helping families open bank accounts, apply for benefits, and register with their local doctor, schools and English classes.
  • We introduce them to other Refugees and local community groups, to the library and to local events.
  • We work to build their confidence and encourage them to volunteer and look for jobs.

We are only funded for a set number of families under the Syrian Resettlement Scheme, The Afghan Resettlement Scheme and the Ukrainian Resettlement Scheme. We don’t have funding to help other families who so desperately need our services, please donate today to change this.
