Refugees At Home
Home Office accommodation and support for refugees ends 28 days after an asylum decision is made, after which a high proportion of recently-recognised refugees end up destitute. Refugees at Home intervenes at this critical moment by connecting asylum seekers and refugees in need of accommodation with volunteers who want to offer a spare room in their home. Started in 2015 by a group of volunteers, growth has been exponential, and leading charities such as the Red Cross, the Refugee Council, CrisisUK and St Mungo’s increasingly turn to Refugees at Home when they are unable to find accommodation for the ever-increasing numbers asking for help. The Fore’s grant will enable Refugees at Home to professionalise the organisation’s management, developing the capacity that will underpin its future growth.
