We run houses donated to the project by sympathetic landlords across the Bradford area. In these houses we accommodate refused asylum seekers who are either working towards submitting fresh claims / evidence to the Home Office or are considering voluntary return. We support residents while they are accommodated by us with food, money and advice.

Needs: we need sympathetic landlords with empty properties to consider letting us use their houses for little or no rent. We also need regular financial supporters and others who can donate household items or their time.
