Migrant Destitution

Housing Justice Hosting

Housing Justice operates a hosting scheme in London providing temporary accommodation for homeless migrants and refugees while their asylum or immigration case is being addressed. We are always in need of volunteer hosts willing to share their homes, even on a temporary or occasional basis. Our processes include thorough risk assessments to ensure the safety of both hosts and refugee guests.
