About Us

Like so many other people, we had seen the pictures of hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the destruction of their homes in the cities of Syria but felt powerless to help.

Then in 2016 the Home Office and civil society organisations came together to launch 'The Community Sponsorship of Refugees scheme'. As a community group, this was the opportunity we had been waiting for. It has allowed us to directly support refugee families.
