What we dO
Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees is a local charity formed in 2017 to help support refugees from Syria resettling in the Sevenoaks district, as part of the UK Government's Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS). That scheme has now evolved into the Government's global UK Resettlement Scheme.
We are a small and growing organisation, with about 100 active volunteers. We are currently supporting the resettlement of 6 Syrian refugee families in the Sevenoaks district area, and are hoping to find accommodation for further families this year.
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.
We hope that Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees will be able to play a part in the Afghanistan refugee resettlement programme. Sevenoaks District Council has announced that that it is participating in the Afghanistan resettlement programme, as well as the Government's ongoing global resettlement scheme. But for refugees to be resettled in our area we need to find more landlords willing to rent their properties to the scheme at Local Housing Allowance rates. We need more volunteers to help us search for more landlords.

SWR DRAGON BOAT SPLASH!
Many, many thanks to the rowers, supporters and donors who made our participation in the Dragon Boat Race fundraising event at Tonbridge on Sunday 5 September such a success! With an initial target of £1,500 the event has now raised more than £3,200! We really are very appreciative of all this support and will ensure that the money is put to good use in support of refugees as they resettle and build new lives in our area. And it's not too late to donate - our online page for donations is open until the end of September here: JustGiving
