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

For more information, contact George Gabriel.

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

    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.
