Want to lend a helping hand? Great! Here’s how.

Donate your time

We have a team of around 40 volunteers who work as befrienders, tutors, English teachers, interpreters, drivers, and much more!  There is also a Core Team of volunteers who run the group.

Our volunteers work with local refugees from many countries, including Syria, Afghanistan, Ukraine and Sudan, as well as asylum-seeking families and Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) from a wide variety of countries.

Find out more about Volunteering.

If we have specific volunteer roles that need filling, we use our website, newsletter, Facebook page and local volunteer forum to advertise these.  Subscribe to our newsletter to stay connected and follow us on Facebook.

Donate financially

We have used money donated to help refugee families buy things that are not covered by their scheme and have an added expense, such as laptops, dictionaries and secondary school uniform.  We also buy items to provide ‘the basics’ for asylum-seeking families who arrive in the area.  Our funds are also used to buy resources (such as crafts and games) for social occasions with the families and our volunteers, or for our English conversation group sessions (such as dictophones and teaching resources).

Donate items

We put out requests via our website and newsletters when the refugees we support have a need.  Find out what we are looking for.

Please note that we don’t take donations unless we are asking for specific items.  You can give to Horsham Matters to support local people in need, or to Sussex Aid for Refugees to help other refugees.

Tell us about your vacant property

One of the biggest challenges in this area is finding appropriate properties for refugees who come here under refugee schemes.  If you are a landlord and wish to help, please get in contact and we can tell you more.

Support the cause

Take time to find out about Safe Passage, Citizens UK’s campaign to persuade government to do more for refugees.  They are campaigning for “routes to safety, family and hope for refugees”.
