Who we can help
We may be able to arrange for short-term, temporary accommodation with one of our volunteer hosts if you:
- have refugee status
- have leave to remain
- are actively engaged in the asylum process, or
- are hoping to come to the UK under the Homes for Ukraine sponsorship scheme.
All guests should read our Information for guests before applying to us for hosting.
How to apply
Most guests going through the asylum process are referred to us by their case workers or other organisations who are supporting them.
If you would like to refer a guest, please read our Referrer application guide and then fill in our application form at the end of the guidance.
You can apply directly to us if you have refugee status in the UK. You will also need to have a good level of English, and a plan for where you will go once your hosting ends.
If this describes you, please read our Guest application guide and then fill in the application form at the end of the guidance.
“The family that hosted me was so wonderful, from the first day they gave me a very warm welcome, saying in my mother tongue, ‘Welcome to our home it’s your home’ with a wide smile.”
