Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees makes grants to refugee families now in the area to assist in their long-term resettlement and improve their quality of life. From warm clothes and children’s swimming lessons, to laptops and professional accountancy exams, these small grants are helping all the families thrive in a new country. We also make grants to help incentivise private sector landlords to rent their properties to refugees. With a growing number of refugees in our area, our need for donations is greater than ever.

We forecast that we will have spent well over £50,000 on refugee support in this financial year - this could not happen without your generous support. 

Recent expenditure by Sevenoaks Welcomes Refugees to help support refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine now in our area includes: suitcases for a family trying to escape from Kharkiv, gymnastics classes for children, taxi costs to get to medical appointments, a lawnmower, school uniforms, a printer, air fryer, shoe rack, tennis lessons for children, CCTV, car road tax, flights and starter food shopping for people arriving from Ukraine. Some of the expenditure makes up for deficiencies in the equipment in houses provided, providing safety and security measures, helping with medical issues, school holiday activities to help children integrate, assisting Ukrainians to get here and survive until their benefits start.

We really are very appreciative of every donation, large and small, and we ensure that the money is put to good use in support of refugees as they resettle and build new lives in our area. 

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS!
