Refugee Welcome Homes
Justice. Welcome. Partnership. Respect. Integrity.
Refugee Welcome Homes is a Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Bristol that matches socially conscious people who have a spare room with someone who has received “refugee status” (the right to remain and live in the UK) and is struggling to find somewhere to live. Our mission is to reduce homelessness for refugees and to help them access accommodation as a first step towards integration in their new life in the UK.
We believe that all people should have a place to call home. Our core values are justice, welcome, partnership, respect and integrity and these provide the foundation for the ethos upon which we operate as a Christian CIC. We work with people of all faiths and none.
We want to see a world that is fair, equitable and accessible for everyone and we want to be part of making this happen. Getting involved in Refugee Welcome Homes means getting involved in making real justice for refugees in our city by welcoming refugees into your home and community.
We will promote a culture of justice in all our relationships both internally and externally. We will lead by example and we will actively promote justice.
Respect & Integrity
We are currently looking for people who live in Bristol, have a spare room and would like to rent it out to a refugee lodger. You could earn up to £390 a month (bills excluded), tax free (under the government rent a room scheme).
Refugees can face many barriers when it comes to trying to find accommodation, making it often almost impossible for refugees to rent privately in Bristol apart from in ‘slum’ housing conditions with unscrupulous landlords. By connecting landlords who want to rent out a room in their house and a refugee lodger, Refugee Welcome Homes wants to work with Bristolian landlords to change refugee homelessness and make this a real city of sanctuary for refugees.
Please contact us if you would like an info pack, just ask questions or hear about what we are doing and why.
