Welcome Projects

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.

They provide information about local groups and services and support asylum seekers to find a place to belong within community.
