The Welcome projects are currently working in 8 cities across Yorkshire & Humberside and the North East.
A referral can be made for any asylum-seeker that is new to one of the cities listed or is due to be moved there. A volunteer in that city will contact them and arrange to meet them to show them their new local area and how to access important services.
The City Information page has information about services and drop-ins in dispersal cities in the two regions, including cities where there is not currently a welcome project.
The Welcome projects are multi-agency projects and each one is run in a different way. If you have any questions, please contact the relevant project, via the City Information page. These are some of the organisations involved:
