Syria refugee support

مدينة يورك ترحب باللاجئين السوريين

The city of York welcomes Syrian refugees.

York is preparing to welcome Syrian refugee to the city. We are working with key partners to identify how York can best provide support.

There are many ways that you can help now.

Donations, clothing and household items

You can donate money to the city's independently run York Refugee Appeal - visit the Two Ridings Community Foundation website to find out more.


We are currently working with organisations so that Syrian families will have a house to live in.

However, there are many other asylum seekers and refugees who need accommodation. In York 'City of Sanctuary' regularly need places where people can stay, sometimes just for short periods of time - if you're able to offer help contact Paul Wordsworth, Co-ordinator via email:

Other assistance
