Save Lives by Helping Resettle Refugees

Citizens UK is asking you to save lives by helping the UK to resettle more refugees.

There's a vast refugee crisis in the Middle East.

Millions of Iraqis and Syrians have fled to Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, including one million children.

The UN urgently needs the rest of the world to resettle the 320,000 most vulnerable Syrian refugees. So far the UK has taken just 90 - that's 30 more than Luxembourg, but 1.1 million fewer than Lebanon!

If you'd like to spread the word, the information on this page is available as an infographic.

There are several ways you can help:

  • Offer to welcome a refugee to your community and find them a safe home - sign up here.
  • Ask your council to resettle 50 refugees - sign up for a training event here.
  • Ask your MP to up the UK resettlement quota - find their contact details here.
  • Register your Local Refugee Welcome Committee with the National Refugee Welcome Board here
  • Consider Community Sponsorship - find out more about Sponsor Refugees here

For more information, contact George Gabriel.

If 50 councils each pledge to resettle 50 refugees, we will transform 2,500 lives.

    I’m homeless – I’ve been forced to live in a van because of divorce. I’ve been homeless for 4 years. I also work, pay tax (as I have done my whole adult life), and have never claimed benefits. I’ve requested housing, but denied.

    Why do these people get preference over me?

    It is really sad that nowadays people have to run due to war in their own country. We think that we live in civilized world, with plenty of technologies like electric cars or <a href=“”“>”>mobiles casinosk</a>, but people still run for their lives… Dissapointing

    I’m all for settling these refugee’s… countries that they are suited to…and that is .NOT BRITAIN.

    So all the news papers are wrong are they, its not the rape capital of Europe…and they haven’t advised the people to go along with all that’s happening because its too late to do anything about it…you must live in a bubble…wake up before your daughter gets raped, or before you are burgled as my daughter was by three of your Muslim imports, she won’t get the ring and necklace back…given to her by her mother just before she died, she wont get back any of the Birthday money stolen from her childrens piggy banks by these poor immigrant children… none of which were younger than 18, we all have to suffer because you want to feed your bloody ego’s…traitors, my sister was the only British person I saw that Sunday in Hospital in Croydon, after a half mile walk down the high street….and I dare you to walk down Luton High street on a Saturday with a visible cross around your neck, you will be told to get out of their town…..give money to house them…..YOU MUST BE BLOODY JOKING.

    I’m sorry Headlea Leate but you’ve been reading some very inaccurate articles. I actually live in Croydon so I’ve walked through it quite a few times. It’s a great place, full of diversity. I feel quite safe there. I’ve also been to Sweden quite recently, visiting friends, and can safely say it is not the ‘rape capital of europe’. Why it’s not the capital of anywhere, it’s a country.

    I also think you are putting Refugees in the same pot as… anyone who is different from you. Many refugees are fleeing precisely because they are not Muslim. They are often fleeing extremists, such as ‘The Muslim Brotherhood’. They are then the last people who are likely to be extremists.

    It’s not being a “do-gooder” to feel empathy and then act on that empathy. It’s quite a human reaction.

    Again, I’m sorry you’re frightened and afraid, but you really don’t have to be. I think you’ve been reading misleading and manipulative articles. “600 towns and village in France you have ask a local Imamate to visit”? Really? Have you been to France? That is definitely not correct.

    One quick question though, before I spend too much more time. Are you a spam bot?

    No one wants to blow you up Headlea Leate . People are Refugees because they are fleeing extremism. I know it’s easy to be scared of people who seem to be so different from yourself, but if you talk to them nicely you will see that they’re not so different.

    In terms of the welfare state (schools, police, NHS etc), it’s under strain for 2 key reasons. (1) it’s being under funded. You will see how finding has gone down significantly since 2010. (2) we have an ageing population, so more people claiming from the NHS, in the form of pensions and medical care, than are paying into it. We need more people of working age paying into the welfare state!

    You said that these people want to ‘destroy the Christian church’, but then also talk about ‘do gooders’ and ‘traitors’. Think about the lessons of the Christian church. To welcome others and be open to them irrespective of their differences. This country has proud history of diversity. We are all sons of romans, angles, saxons, celts, Huguenots, and countless other nationalities, creeds and religions. Even the language we speak is a mix of germanic, Norman French, Greek, latin, Celtic etc.

    It’s okay to feel apprehensive, but don’t let it turn into hate. Read about the lives of some of the refugees. Imagine what they’ve gone through. They didn’t want to leave their homes, they’re often scared to be in a new strange place. Be the the bigger man and welcome your new neighbours.

    Headless Leate- how dare you pass judgement on people you know nothing about! Go educate yourself before you pass comment. Have you worked in prison so you know the ratio of criminals, rapist, murders by ethnicity? Jimmy saville was Syrian right?, this recent police officers raping boys was Syrian right Fred west Syrian right??? NO!!!!
    So get your facts right!!! Small minded uneducated, uncultured people like you are what is destroying this country and MY children’s future!

    Why don’t you people try and do something worthwhile like help homeless people in THIS country instead of trying to force more benefit scroungers onto us from another country. There’s plenty of Ex-military who are struggling on our streets who deserve your help more than the 1000’s of MIGRANTS who want free handouts from us.

    You do gooding people make me sick, we have enough social problems of our own without lumbering us with more waste. Take New years Eve as a warning! these people care nothing for our laws, our way of life, our values, our culture, OUR COUNTRY, they just WANT WANT WANT!

    The majority of these people are young males 20-30’s, all are nicely dressed, well fed, with more credit on their mobile phones than O2. They should be fighting for their country not running away from it letting others do their dirty work. Oh that’s right they get free everything here why fight for it!

    Hi. There is no lobbying training for Cornwall council. Also, why are you only asking for landlords for whole families? Why not ask for people offering single rooms, also? I’m looking for somewhere to allocate a single room to a refugee. I may be able to offer a flat to a whole family but the local authority rental rate is too low. In germany and austria organisations raise funds to subsidise rents for refugee families. We should do that also. Landlords can’t all afford to rent at the housing allowance rate. Thanks for considering this.
