Communities for Afghans

In response to humanitarian crisis and increased need, the 'Communities for Afghans' programme is a partnership between us and the UK Government to build a community led pathway for families fleeing Afghanistan to be supported to settle into our communities.

We are looking for people who are ready to play a significant role in this endeavour over the next two years, this will include:

  • Recruiting a small team of at least 6 people committed to offering a warm welcome to an Afghan refugee family in your community for the next two years;
  • Helping to identify and secure a property to house the family (it needs to have its own front door and be of good quality);
  • Supporting the family to access benefits and public services, and move towards sustainable employment.

Learn More: Introductory Briefings

If you think you or your community may be willing to be involved, we will be running regular introductory sessions to provide more details, you can sign up to these here:

If you want more information but can't attend an introductory session, please get in touch.

These sessions are not for local authorities who want to learn more about the programme. Please contact the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities for relevant information.
