Refugee host with 'At Home'

One of the greatest challenges faced by the refugees accompanied by JRS UK,  is the lack of accommodation. The JRS At Home programme organises short term accommodation with individuals, parishes and religious communities for refugees who would otherwise be homeless.

If you live in the London area and have a spare room, you could make a huge difference to the life of refugee.
