REFUGEES WELCOME NORTH SOMERSET

Established in 2016, RWNS started as a group of local people collecting aid for those in camps in Northern Europe and beyond. Volunteers have since worked with North Somerset Council to ready houses for vulnerable families arriving under the government’s resettlement schemes.

RWNS offers friendship and support to refugees, asylum seekers, and other displaced people across North Somerset. 

Our work includes:

  • Rehoming – preparing secure, comfortable accommodation for displaced people in the South West
  • Donations – linking donations of items to those in need
  • Befriending – our companionship service welcomes new arrivals and helps people settle into the area
  • Welcome Centre – a hub for education and social events for resettled refugees and newly arrived individuals
  • Campaigning and fundraising – wider activities that support those in need of a safe place to go
