Objectives

We are a West-Yorkshire based charitable company dedicated to providing support and homes to refugees and asylum seekers who find themselves destitute on our streets. This includes those who have been refused asylum but cannot reasonably return to their country of origin and those given refugee status who have to leave their Home Office housing.

Activities

Our Refugee Housing Project in Leeds provides temporary accommodation for new refugees to help bridge the gap between Home Office support and a successful application for social housing.

Our Destitution Project in Bradford provides temporary housing and support to asylum seekers whose asylum application has been refused and who are destitute, but who are actively working towards submitting fresh asylum claims.
