Refugees Welcome Haringey is a group of Haringey residents who since September 2015 have campaigned for Syrian refugees to be resettled in our borough. We also support efforts to resettle unaccompanied refugee children from across Europe and camps in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as campaigns to support and respect refugees and asylum seekers already here.
We would be delighted if you could join us for this event on World Refugee Day
Update October 2016
We are very pleased that after several months of energetic activism our #4familiesbyXmas campaign has resulted in a commitment from Haringey Council to resettle ten families!
We are so grateful to all the Haringey residents who have contacted us for the many warm and generous offers of support for the refugees.
We expect the families will start to arrive in early 2017 and are really looking forward to welcoming them to our community.
The ten families will be resettled via the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement scheme – funded by central Government – and will be housed in private sector accommodation. Voluntary and Community Sector organisations and residents from across the borough are ready to provide support.
If you have a property and would like to offer accommodation to a Syrian family there is information here on how the scheme works and how to contact the Council. If you have some spare time and would be interested to befriend a family, or have a particular skill such as ESOL teaching, or Arabic-English interpreting, that you would be willing to offer for a few hours a week as a volunteer, please use the contact form on the GET IN TOUCH page.
