Is Spare Room Sorted only concerned about refugees from Ukraine? What about other refugees in the UK ?
Spare Room Sorted was set up in response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and news of the Homes for Ukraine scheme. But the aim is to help anyone preparing to host refugees from other countries too.
How can I find an organiser to help me sort out my spare room?
The list of professional organisers volunteering with Spare Room Sorted is divided into three sections:
- Organisers who only work virtually (via zoom or phone)
- Organisers who offer both home visits and virtual sessions
- Organisers who only offer home visits
You’ll find website addresses and email addresses for over 50 experts, including geographical locations of those who offer home visits.
I have a room to offer and would like to host. Can you help me to find a refugee to sponsor?
For safeguarding reasons, it’s vital that all offers of accommodation and support go through official channels only. Please follow the advice on the government website: https://homesforukraine.campaign.gov.uk/
