Story

Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees is a local charity formed in 2017 originally to help support refugees from Syria resettling in the Sevenoaks district, as part of the UK Government's Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS). That scheme has now evolved into the Government's global UK Resettlement Scheme, and we are also now helping refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine to resettle in the Sevenoaks district area.

Our 3 key needs are properties/rooms that can be provided for refugees under any of the schemes, active volunteers that can give us some hours of their time every now and then, and money (we make welfare grants to the families in our area).
