Welcoming the Stranger – Let a Home to a Refugee Family

Millions of refugees are Syrian families forced to flee during eight years of war. The Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS) enables the most vulnerable families to be relocated from refugee camps in the Middle East to a safe country where they can rebuild their lives. West Sussex CC are part of the UK Government’s commitment to the UNHCR scheme with ring fenced financial help. Are you someone who could offer a two or three bedroom house or flat in Crawley or East Grinstead (preferably with a garden), available for 12 months minimum, near good public service and transport links and available now or in the near future? The rent for the house/flat offered would be to rent at local housing benefit rates. Please contact Cathy Merry, Refugees Welcome –  Crawley on 07968688380 or merrycat1@gmail.com
