Bermondsey Welcomes Refugee's vision is to resettle a vulnerable refugee family into the Bermondsey and Rotherhithe community.  We aim to support them to fulfill a sustainable life in the UK.


There are a number of ways you can support our work, below are two examples.  For other ways, take a look at our 'Get Involved' page to see what suits you best.


Are you a landlord?  Do you know a landlord looking to rent a property? 

Our next step is to secure a self-contained property to rent for 2 years+ in the Bermondsey or Rotherhithe area of London, to house a vulnerable refugee family. We are looking for a reasonable priced property with at least two bedrooms, close to local amenities such as schools, shops and travel. 

The accommodation does not need to be in perfect decor and repair as we will organise this.

Landlords will benefit from a guaranteed two-year+ rental income and will be helping to settle a vulnerable refugee family into the community!  Contact us if you have something suitable. 

Are you a tradesperson? Do you have experience in refurbishment?  If so, get in touch and help us to prepare the  property for when our refugee family arrives. 

We will be looking for furnishings and household equipment for when our refugee family arrives.  If you can help, get in touch with us.
