Bermondsey Welcomes Refugees' vision is to resettle a vulnerable refugee family into the Bermondsey and Rotherhithe community.  We aim to support them to fulfill a sustainable life in the UK.


There are a number of ways you can support take a look at our 'Get Involved' page to see what suits you best.


Our application to resettle a refugee family to the UK has been given full approval by the UK Home Office.   We are delighted our hard work has paid off and we are now getting ready to welcome the family shortly.  

Are you a tradesperson? Do you have experience in refurbishment?  If so, get in touch and help us to prepare the  property for when our refugee family arrives. 

We will be looking for furnishings and household equipment for when our refugee family arrives.  If you can help, get in touch with us.


After a long seach we are pleased to say that we have now found a suitable home for our family. 

We need to equip the property in readiness for the family's arrival, if you have new/good condition household goods you can donate please get in contact.


We are busy fundraising to achieve our target of £12,000  We are 80% there, but need your donation to push us to our goal.  You can donate to our work using the QR code or the 'donate button' below.
