Welcome Projects

Get equipped to welcome refugees and asylum seekers.

RECEIVE COORDINATOR AND WELCOMER (VOLUNTEER) TRAINING FOR ONE OF OUR WELCOME PROJECTS.

We offer tailored training to churches to help you develop how you can welcome refugees and asylum seekers in your local context.

We get to know your church personally; providing practical tools to ensure your church is ready to give a good ‘Welcome’ to refugees arriving, providing community where people from other cultures feel they can belong.

We believe that newly-arrived refugees and asylum seekers deserve the very best quality of care and support that is on offer. Our projects equip and resource the local church to play a positive role in welcoming refugees to their local area.

Welcome Boxes

Specifically equipping churches to welcome and support asylum seekers, housed in Home Office accommodation.  Trained volunteers deliver a Welcome Box, filled with small gifts, to the homes of people who have recently arrived in the area. They provide information about local groups and services and support asylum seekers to find a place to belong within community.

Welcome Holidays

Do you live in an area where other people like to come on holiday? We are looking for churches who could host a Welcome Holiday, giving refugees the chance to escape from the stress and chaos that life in the UK can bring.
