Aims Grace Hosting links volunteers with a spare room, with asylum seekers & refugees who have nowhere to stay. Hosting provides a practical, humanitarian response to people in immediate danger of harm & exploitation, whose immigration status means they can't get help from mainstream homeless services.
Description Hosts provide a hot meal & a safe place to sleep. Guests may stay a few nights, a few weeks, & sometimes longer. Each Guest is linked to specialist services who help them to find the legal, medical & social support to move out of destitution. In 2016 Hosts hosted 89 Guests over 4,200 nights.
