The Hammersmith & Fulham Refugees Welcome group is one of about 100 citizens-led Refugees Welcome groups across the UK. The Refugees Welcome movement was started in response to the refugee crisis as a practical way for people to organise and help refugees. The groups are supported by Citizens UK, a charity that organises communities to act together for power, social justice and the common good.
HRFW supports the families the Council has resettled in the borough and opened West London’s first Drop-In Centre for refugees and migrants; West London Welcome.
Every group is different and runs independently. In West London, we receive support, advice and collaborate with a number of local organisations. One of these is Migrants Organise, a charity that welcomes, supports, and organises migrant and refugee communities in London.
