You can act right now to help distressed and displaced Afghan refugee families find homes, and a community where they can thrive. Please donate to the Oasis ‘A Place Called Home’ project.
Oasis communities across the country will be working with the Home Office and local authorities to host and house families.
You can also register your interest in housing and supporting a family yourself, as part of a local community group by visiting our website.
Long term wraparound support for families
As we’ve watched evacuated Afghan families arrive at British airports, traumatised and displaced, our hearts have gone out to them. We know what an uphill struggle they face and we feel powerless to help.
However, there is something you can do right now.
Oasis has launched ‘A Place Called Home’, a project offering refugee families from Afghanistan not just a welcome, but long-term support to make a new life.
Working in partnership with the Home Office and local authorities:
‘A Place Called Home’ will find accommodation for refugees in some of the 42 local communities where Oasis works over the coming months.
But we will go much further, offering wrap-around support for these families, helping them to:
- Settle in, get a bank account, access to English classes, etc
- Access education
- Gain employment opportunities
- Build new supportive relationships
- Become part of a community where they can contribute and thrive
