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 don’t want to help the refugees, that’s fine, but don’t try and tell other people they are wrong because they want to. Trojan horse my arse. There have been terrorist attacks prior to this mass migration, so please, shut your noise.
    And in terms of helping indigenous Brits out before anyone else, shut up moaning and go and do it if you feel that strongly.

    I am in council property, it’s just myself and my husband and we have two spare room’s one medium size and one small but enough room for three people. My family use the rooms when they come to visit but am sure they won’t mind giving up the room’s to help. We would like to help the refugees until they can be given more permanent home’s. I don’t know what the council will say but the offer is there.

    Can the people full of anti-Muslim loathing let us know what they have done to help the homeless ex- servicemen that they talk about?

    It was Tony Blair’s ego that destroyed the lives of these people. Maybe he can spare one of his houses in Islington. That should put a stop to house price inflation in London N5.

    NO!
    Do NOT do this.
    It is a Trojan Horse.
    Governments have Five Year Plans, but insidious Islam does not care for our FLPs. It has centuries to shackle us with its repressive burden. When it goes wrong our elected representatives are driven away from the scene of their treason to their secure sanctuaries.
    Just say NO!

    My 2 daughters and I would welcome a mother with young children into our home. As a single mum, I’d be wary of having men to stay, but would house and support a mother with children for as long as was necessary.

    Thanks to people who have flagged racist and offensive comments. We will be removing any such comments. Would hope people could use this page to be constructive.

    First of all, I wish that woman called “Elizabeth Swinchatt” would stop spewing out this vile poison – one should actually block her and delete her comments asap. Unbelievable!!

    I don’t have any empty property but would like to offer a room to perhaps a woman and small child, until other appropriate accommodation has been found.

    I don`t have a property to spare, but would willingly offer a room to a Syrian refugee. I remember the warmth & generosity I was given, travelling in Syria 18 years ago.

    If the people who responded to my post had read it properly they would see that I was offering a home to Christians, not Muslims

    If Government, landlords, and local authorities can accommodate refugees, why can’t they provide safe accommodation for the thousands of homeless people who are already in this Country. Why is there no outcry for accommodation and help for them? I don’t see headlines or emotional pictures for these homeless families, young people, vulnerable people and ex-military personnel, amongst others. They surely have an equal right to a safe place to live, and should not be left vulnerable on the streets. Here are a few links to some of the organisations who try to help – without huge donations from the Government. So why £900m for refugees, when they are unable to find funds for British homeless? Surely any money should be shared equally to house all the homeless.

    Yes rank hypocrisy. Mentally ill people left to fend for themselves on streets. Landlords evicting poor families. One photo and the country goes all Lady Diana. Just open your eyes to the poverty and death in our country. Furthermore try father if the drowned chikd should be prosecuted for manslaughter. He was akready in a safe place with his family. He just fancied a better standard of living. Don’t we all. We don’t imperil the lives of our children to obtain it however

    I find British citizenry so hypocritical like these landlords offering accomodation to refugees, but what about the thousands of homeless and ex – military they ignore?
  • commented 2015-09-04 19:38:06 +0100
    We have a spare room and would be more than happy to help.
  • commented 2015-09-04 19:29:14 +0100
    Disgusting…what about our 4500+ homeless veterans? they come first.
  • commented 2015-09-04 19:28:19 +0100
    how many of our own British people will have to die in order to take these immigrants ?? how many more thousands of British elderly and disabled will be “CULLED” to make way for these immigrants ?? how many more British people will be forced out of their homes so that these immigrants can move in ??

    Hi all, some of you might be interested in Positive Action in Housing’s work: http://www.paih.org/host-a-refugee

    Thousands of boarded up empty homes in the north east of England. I would also make room for a family in my home.

    I have no property to rent out but as a short-term measure would be more than happy to shelter and feed a family .

    For people like me who can offer spare rooms etc it seems from looking at the site the way forward is:
    1. Via the above link “Take Action Now/Saving lives by helping to resettle refugees”, to sign up as a volunteer through the Citizens UK partnership with Avaaz. In the first instance to priority is to lobby your local council to support resettlement and to make clear that you are willing to help
    2. Check link above to local chapters of Citizens UK and see if there is one active in your area. Some of these groups are already involved in supporting refugees

    I am not able to rent out a property, but would be very happy to share our 4-bedroom family home with a Syrian family. Please let me know how I can go about arranging this.

    Hi Jemma – this is all new to me to but from looking around this site earlier you may be able to join up with a local chapter of Citizens uk, and/or via the above link “Take Action Now/Saving lives by helping to resettle refugees”, to sign up as a volunteer through the Citizens UK partnership with Avaaz.
  • commented 2015-09-04 14:14:44 +0100
