مدينة يورك ترحب باللاجئين السوريين
The city of York welcomes Syrian refugees.
York is preparing to welcome Syrian refugees to the city. We are part of the York Human Rights City Network, working with key partners to identify how York can best provide support.
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 to ensure that Syrian families will have houses to live in.
However, there are many other asylum seekers and refugees who need accommodation. As York is recognised as a City of Sanctuary, we regularly need places where people can stay, sometimes just for short periods of time. If you're able to offer help, contact Paul Wordsworth, the York City of Sanctuary movement co-ordinator, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a private landlord who would like to get involved, consider letting your property to vulnerable Syrian refugee families via the YorHome Incentive Scheme.
You can also make a donation or volunteer with some of these organisations:
- Refugee Action York
- City of Sanctuary York
- STAR: Student Action for Refugees
- York Says Refugees Welcome Here
- Amnesty International (York City Centre)
- Yorkshire Aid
