Today we’re seeing the biggest movement of people to Europe since the refugee crisis following World War II. If you’ve come to this page because you want to respond to what you’ve seen on the news, thank you.
The Room for Refugees Network helps men, women and children who are fleeing for their lives to rebuild their lives.
With over 7,100 host families registered as of April 2018, we are proud to make this form of support commonplace in Europe.
Since 2002, we have placed thousands of people, for anything from a week to months and years and notched up tens of thousands of nights of shelter.
Many of those we’re trying to settle are from Syria. They’re also from Afghanistan, Iraq, Eritrea, Iran, and many other countries suffering war, human rights abuse and environmental catastrophe.
Showing hospitality is one of the most practical and powerful ways you can respond.
Our hosts are from all backgrounds.
Regardless of wealth, status or celebrity, we respect our hosts’ privacy and treat everyone equally. We ask of similar standards from hosts, guests and caseworkers.
Our social media presence is limited.
Our primary focus is on consistently providing humanitarian support at a time when there are 23.5M refugees in the world and our governments are dismantling the human rights and refugee protections that were constructed in post war Europe.
