Refugees Welcome in Richmond is a group of local people working to support refugees and asylum seekers in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
We provide befriending and language support to help people to settle into the community and access the services they need. We're always looking for more people to help us in our work - if you'd like to find out more, contact us.
We're also working to find homes in the Borough for people fleeing the crisis in Syria. LBRUT has so far welcomed three families under the government's VPRS scheme, and we urgently need more rental properties so that we can bring more people to safety. With the Council we've developed an excellent package of commercial benefits for landlords who let a property to the scheme. For more information click here.
We're really happy to have the support of the Borough's two MPs, Zac Goldsmith and Vince Cable. Click here to see their statements.
