Refugee Lodging Scheme

Spare room?

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.
