H&F Refugees Welcome aims to resettle refugees from camps in the Middle East into the borough.
The Hammersmith & Fulham Refugees Welcome Group is one of about 100 citizens-led Refugees Welcome groups in the UK. The Refugees Welcome movement started in response to the refugee crisis as a practical way to help refugees. Our aim is to resettle refugees from the camps in the Middle East under the Government's Syrian Vulnerable Persons and Vulnerable Children's Resettlement Scheme. Once arrived, we help refugees adapt to UK daily life and integrate into our society.Why the community needs us
We work together helping refugee families integrate into the West London community. As a group we help them arrange practical things like making a Dr's appointment, find their nearest library and education facility, and where they can locate the cheapest and nicest food markets and shops, for example. In addition, we help them learn English, get skills needed to find work and much more to make refugees valuable members of our society.Our impact on the community
Hammersmith and Fulham is one of the most ethically diverse London boroughs. People from all over the world have enriched the area through their culture making it one of the most enlightened and vibrant areas of West London. By welcoming refugee families we add to the boroughs eclectic mix.
We need volunteers helping us find housing to resettle more refugees and volunteers helping with events and fundraising
