مدينة يورك ترحب باللاجئين السوريين
The city of York welcomes Syrian refugees - we are part of the York Human Rights City Network, working with key partners to identify how to best provide support in our area.
Donations, clothing and household items for refugees
You can donate money to the city's independently run York Refugee Appeal via the Two Ridings Community Foundation.
Accommodation for refugees
York is recognised as a City of Sanctuary and we work with refugee families who need accommodation - 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're a private landlord who can help to accomodate refugees, consider letting your property to vulnerable families via the YorHome Incentive Scheme.
