If you are not able to offer a spare room, there are other ways to get involved.

When my struggle was hardest, Positive Action in Housing helped get through it.

Menesia, a midwife from Namibia, volunteers with several groups supporting asylum seekers and refugees

We are looking for people who can volunteer with Host Assessments, Casework Assistance, and Matching Guests with Hosts. Volunteer in person or remotely to increase our capacity to help refugees and asylum seekers at a time of crisis.

We are happy to cover travel expenses, lunch expenses (up to £6), provide references and deliver certificates to all of you who join the team. Free t-shirts and neck scarves too. For more information please email home@positiveactionh.org or complete the application form online.

Many of our volunteers are networking with other hosts and guests in their areas – these hosting ‘hubs’ around the country provide helpful peer support. Please get in touch if you would like to set one up in your area.
