Get Involved with a Community Sponsorship Group
Community Sponsorship is a refugee resettlement programme with local people at its heart.
Support a local charity
The main local charities offering support at the moment are:
Afghanistan and Central Asian Association - based in Hounslow, they provide support, skills and knowledge to help communities in the UK.
Refugee Action Kingston - supporting refugees in Kingston and surrounding areas with advice, counselling, training and more.
Both have 'wish lists' for items but the best way to help at the moment is likely to be financial donations to help them deliver their work.
Support a national charity
There are many charities contributing to the national response that you can donate to. Some suggestions are listed below:
Campaign and advocate
Food and Hygiene Banks
If you are a private landlord and can supply a secure and safe home for refugees, you could rent your property through Richmond Council. Get in touch with the Temporary Accommodation team by calling 020 8871 7333 or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Support for veterans
The UK government has collated a range of information and support to help members of the armed forces who are struggling as a result of the recent events in Afghanistan. Visit the webpage by clicking here.
