We are not accepting any  hosting referrals at present (December 2020) because of the Pandemic. This is to ensure the health and safety of our valued hosting volunteers. This will be reviewed if and when the Public Health situation improves in 2021.

During “normal” times we would usually accept referrals from voluntary organisations working with migrants in danger of destitution based in the West Midlands Conurbation( Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Wolverhampton). We have stopped taking referrals from Local Authority NRPF teams.
