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.

    Kathryn there is a lot of info on this site – 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. The immediate priority seems to be to lobby local councils to support and co-ordinate resettlement in their areas

    We would be able to share our house with a small family – is there any organisation that is going to be able to help organise this?? – there must be thousands of people across the UK who would be able to help – I know it could only be a short-term solution but I would rather that than have drowned children on my consciense.

    As Rob Jewitt said, I don’t own a rental property, but myself and my family would be happy to provide temporary accommodation too.

    Many people like us don’t have a property to rent but do have spare room and could provide temporary accommodation and support to a family. This could be co-oricated by a local council or community network. Living in North Northumberland I wonder if there are others who who be interested in doing this and also in raising the issue with the County Council and local Town and Parish Councils?
