We are a lean organisation supporting a fast-growing movement, dedicated to building a culture of welcome for asylum seekers and refugees across the UK and Ireland.  Wherever refugees go, we want them to belong and feel safe and valued.

Our local groups offer the chance for local people and refugees to meet, share stories, provide practical help and work together.  They create networks of welcome in schools, businesses, health services, faith groups, sports and the arts which build bridges, improve understanding and reduce isolation, discrimination and fear.

Your donations will help build the movement further by resourcing our local groups and work in schools etc., spreading our message widely and ensuring that refugee voices are directly heard, supporting them to play a full part in the movement.

Our dream is that, with your support, welcoming those seeking sanctuary will become the norm throughout society.
