In London we run a Hosting project, matching people with a spare room with homeless migrants with a claim in the asylum system or an ongoing immigration case.
To see the kind of impact that the scheme has had so far, who we've hosted, who has helped or for more information about the program, also take a look at our Year 1 Review of the scheme.
We are always in need of volunteer hosts with a spare room 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.
