HostNation believes every refugee deserves a friend.
A digital means of connecting those offering friendship with those needing it.
Currently working in Greater London.
We are a London-based introductory service connecting residents to newcomers in the city. Befrienders are matched with and then introduced to a refugee or asylum seeker in their part of town. They commit to being a London host once or twice a fortnight for a minimum of 3 months.
London is a much friendlier place with a Londoner by your side.

To get a feel for befriending watch our two new shorts starring Suzy, Hakim, Sue and Stella:
If you like what we’re trying to do, but are not in London or don’t have the time to befriend, then please consider a one-off or recurring donation.
For a fairly comprehensive list of organisations that provide refugee support - advice, casework, housing, legal, social, drop-in centres - use our links and help befriendees find the support in the capital that they need.
