What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Enfield Refugee Welcome formed as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis. We are a group of Enfield Citizens who want to make sure that Enfield is a welcoming and supportive place for vulnerable refugees. We are working as community sponsors in order to settle a small number of Syrian refugees (allocated under The Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme) in our borough. We have fulfilled the requirements for our first family. We are now raising funds to bring over a second family. In order to gain Home Office approval we need to raise £4,500 per refugee adult. We are working with relevant local organisations such as schools, colleges, health providers, churches, mosques and private landlords to provide these refugees with the support they need to integrate successfully into our community.
We are supported by Citizen UK’s national refugee welcome programme. Caritas, a Westminster Diocese charity supporting social action, is our charity partner, (a Home Office requirement).
