Bermondsey Welcomes Refugees' 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.
HELP US FIND A HOME
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.
We are busy fundraising to achieve our target of £12,000 We are over 60% there, but need your donation to push us to our goal. You can also donate to any of our events through our Just Giving link at the top and bottom of the page.
