We recognise and promote the ongoing work of local organisations that are already supporting refugees and other sanctuary seekers.
SHARE volunteers distribute donations of clothing, footwear and other essential items to refugee camps in host countries and also to resettled refugees and asylum seekers within our local community. (www.shareaid.co.uk tel: 01352759563)
CHAWREC – Cheshire, Halton and Warrington Race and Equality Centre – provides English classes for families through the Government’s Syrian Resettlement Scheme. Trained volunteers support these classes. CHAWREC also runs a structured ‘Befrienders’ . scheme. These volunteers help families to integrate into the community giving them social support and helping them to navigate the complexities of life in the UK.(www.chawrec.org.uk tel: 01244400730)
