What we do

Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees is a local charity formed in 2017 originally to help support refugees from Syria resettling in the Sevenoaks district, as part what is now the UK Government's global UK Resettlement Scheme. We are also helping refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine to resettle in our area. 

We are a small and growing organisation, with about 160 active volunteers. We are currently helping to support the resettlement of 12 refugee families from Syria and Afghanistan in the Sevenoaks district area, and we have been working directly with 50 Ukrainian families [see this Blog for the latest numbers].

ما الذي نقوم به                       

سيفن أوكس ترحب باللاجئين Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees هي منظمة خيرية محلية تم تشكيلها في عام 2017 للمساعدة في دعم اللاجئين من سوريا الذين أعيد توطينهم في منطقة سيفن أوكس Sevenoaks، كجزء من برنامج إعادة توطين الأشخاص السوريين المستضعفين (SVPRS) التابع لحكومة المملكة المتحدة. وقد تطور هذا البرنامج الآن إلى خطــة الحكومة العالمية لإعادة التوطين في المملكة المتحدة.

نحن منظمة صغيرة ومتنامية ، مع حوالي 160 متطوع نشط. نحن ندعم حاليًا إعادة توطين 12 عائلات سورية لاجئة في منطقة سيفينوكس ، ونأمل في العثور على سكن لمزيد من العائلات هذا العام.

Following the Strategic Review and the retirement of a number of long-serving Trustees and Volunteers, we need in the next couple of months to recruit for 4 particularly crucial roles. Please see here and consider helping us if you can as we may have to scale back what we do if we are unable to fill these roles. Thank you! 


We hold open meetings for all refugees, volunteers and supporters every 3 months. Our next meeting is the Winter Meeting & Social on Wednesday 6 December (7:30 - 9:00 pm) at St Johns Hill United Reformed Church, St John's Road, Sevenoaks TN13 3LW.  You are warmly invited! And please bring a friend or two. For the agenda please click here.
