Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Enfield Refugee Welcome Group 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 currently applying for community sponsorship in order to settle (initially one) family of Syrian refugees (allocated under The Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme). 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. In order to gain Home Office approval we need to raise £4,500 per refugee adult. For more information on Community Sponsorship see: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/community-sponsorship-scheme-launched-for-refugees-in-the-uk
We are supported by Citizen UK’s national refugee welcome programme. Caritas, a Westminster Diocese charity supporting social action, is our charity partner.
