Our Liverpool: refugees, people seeking asylum and vulnerable migrants
People seeking sanctuary - how you can help
We are committed to welcoming and supporting refugees, people seeking asylum and vulnerable migrants to Liverpool and helping them to rebuild their lives from the day they arrive.
We have delivered resettlement programmes since 2016, welcoming families from Syria, Eritrea and Afghanistan.
Crisis in Ukraine
Offers of accommodation
The government has launched its Homes for Ukraine site for those wanting to host a refugee. The scheme will match people, charities, businesses and community groups to Ukrainians who do not have family ties to the UK.
You can also find out more about what you can do to help on GOV.UK or support AirBnB’s campaign by donating money or offering your own Airbnb as a safe place to stay.
You can donate money to Disasters Emergency Committee's Ukraine humanitarian appeal and the UK government will match pound-for-pound up to £25m donated.
You can also view the Red Cross information on how to support emergency appeals.
Do you have a spare room?
Resettled refugees coming to the UK are allocated their own property. However, the offer of a room is very much needed for other refugees, such as those who have recently been granted status and are waiting for more permanent accommodation, or people who have been refused asylum.
Are you interested in letting a property?
If you are looking to let your property please email Housing.OptionsRe-HousingTeam@liverpool.gov.uk who help newly granted refugees secure permanent accommodation. The team is especially interested in hearing from you if you have a 4+ bedroom property available.
You can also contact Serco who provide the asylum accommodation in the North West on behalf of the Home Office. They are regularly looking for homes to rent so they can house people seeking sanctuary. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Offers of work and training
If you are an employer and have employment or work experience opportunities for refugees please contact email@example.com.
