OUR VISION


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.

YOUR SUPPORT


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

Update  

Our family have been in the UK for almost two weeks and are doing very well and have settled into their new life. They have started English lessons and are making great progress. The team have worked very hard over the last 18 months to get to this point.  We would like to thank all our supporters for helping to make this happen. We still have a way to go with supporting the family and will continue our fundraising to do so.


FUNDRAISING 

Our family have now arrived to the UK but we still need to focuse on fundraising to make sure we are able support them and cover the number of expenses we still need to make.  We want to make sure they are settled into their new community.


We are still 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'.
