Who we work with
Refugees at Home is proud to be part of a wide community offering support for refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK.
Working together, we can provide a kinder, better way of welcoming and supporting those fleeing war and persecution.
Our referral partners signpost people to apply to us, and support them during their stay. These partners include nationwide refugee and humanitarian agencies such as the British Red Cross, Refugee Council and Scottish Refugee Council; homeless charities including Glass Door and Centrepoint; regional or local organisations such as SHARE Knowsley and ASSIST Sheffield and LGBTQ+ charities such as MicroRainbow.
We do not host unaccompanied children, but we have a strong working relationship with Together with Migrant Children who are our partners for placements involving families with children and young people. Many other amazing organisations provide support and help for our guests, including the Bike Project, Barnardos, Breaking Barriers, and the Helen Bamber Foundation.
“All of us are incredibly grateful for the brilliance that is Refugees at Home, your unflagging patience and refusal to accept that there can never be a solution. It is always a pleasure working with you.”
Referrer, October 2018
Funders and Founders
We are fortunate to be supported by a number of charitable trusts and funding bodies, corporate legal partner Travers Smith, and our Founders’ Circle – a group of generous supporters who donate at least £100 a month to ensure our financial security.
Homes for Ukraine
We are one of the government’s recognised providers for Homes for Ukraine, helping to match people coming from Ukraine with sponsors in the UK.
Support for refugees
We are a proud member of coalitions and networks including Together with Refugees, which brings people together to stand against divisiveness and hate directed at refugees, the No Accommodation Network (NACCOM), which aims to end the destitution caused by the asylum and immigration system, IMIX, which works to improve communications in the refugee sector, and the Living Wage Foundation.
