Help find 5,000 homes for Syrian refugees

Citizens UK has today launched its 'Home for Resettled Refugees Register' - and we need your support to sign up 5,000 landlords who would be willing to rent their property to resettled Syrian refugees.

We have been working on this campaign for a year, but this week we have reached a tipping point, and the Prime Minister is considering an increase in the number of Syrian refugees resettled by the UK.

Quite simply, the more properties pledged on our Register, the more local councils will sign up to participate in the Syrian resettlement programme, the higher the number of Syrians the UK government will consider resettling.

Citizens UK is calling on the government to commit to resettle 10,000 refugees a year for the next two years.

Help us hit that target by adding your rental property to the 'Homes for Resettled Refugees Register'.   

If you don't have any property spare, organise local letting agents and landlords to assist.

    If you are not interested in adopting or fostering a child that needs help unless he/she is a refugee, I don’t know of any reputable organisation that discriminates like that. The Red Cross will help anyone, regardless of colour, creed or anything else, so maybe you could contact them and ask if they are able to meet your specific criteria, as they are already helping people all over the world. Here is the link http://www.redcross.org.uk/

    For those who have suddenly decided they are able to foster, but know nothing about it because they have never considered it before – please check these websites. There are thousands of children in need of care.

    My husband and I are not landlords but have a small guest room with a sofa bed. Enough room for a single person, a couple or a parent and child.

    I am recovering from an operation and my husband is working hard to support us, so I am afraid we cannot look after a parentless child.

    Kindly, Liv Thrane & Nicholas Acons

    If you have spare rooms in your home, contact your local council housing office for advice/to register. They will already be aware of national campaign.

    We have 2 spare rooms in our home and are registered foster carers so can look after children without their parents. We can also offer mum and baby/child accommodation. We are based in Flintshire, Wales. Does it have to be formalised through fostering agencies as there are numerous children that fostering agencies will charge large amounts of money to look after them. I am happy to forfeit any payments for the chidren.

    I am an approved local authority foster carer in Devon. We have room for 2 unaccompanied minors although I expect this would need to be arranged formally through the local authority. I wanted to post on here so you’d know there are foster carers out there who have the room and the motivation to take in refugee children – please don’t overlook us as a resource just because we’re not based in one of the big cities!
