One of the areas we’d like to do more in, is establishing a network of volunteers who can host our refugee friends until they are settled and able to find work and accommodation of their own.
Our hosting initiative is being supported by Sanctuary Hosting, a registered charity whose Vision and Mission is:
We help refugees and vulnerable migrants find options for independent living across the Thames Valley.
We will match destitute asylum seekers, refugees and vulnerable migrants to people in the community with spare rooms and open hearts, to stay rent free for an agreed period of time.
We recently had a training session/workshop with Sanctuary Hosting and our members enjoyed a wonderful day of discussion and teamwork. We are really excited to spread this initiative in and around Bedford.
We are never pushy and are happy to talk things through in a practical and welcoming way, so if you just want to understand more or feel you might be able to offer a temporary home free of charge, then just get in touch!
