WHY WE NEED TO ASK A LOT OF YOU
BEFRIENDER REGISTRATION FORM
Thank you for your interest in HostNation refugee befriending.
By registering you commit to being a London host to a socially isolated refugee or asylum seeker, who may be recently arrived or have lived here 10+ years, but has experienced little of what London has to offer. We hope you will show them more of our great city and how they can enjoy London and have new, positive experiences cheaply and often for free. London is a much friendlier city with a Londoner by your side. You must be able to offer at least 3-4 hours of time to spend together once or twice a fortnight. Befriending is a service and a commitment of time but it can grow into a mutual and personal friendship.
Depending on where you live and the referrals we receive, it may be a few weeks or several months before we match you. This is driven, to a large extent by geography — where befrienders live and where our refugee friends are housed — as the map below illustrates:
We are currently seeking befrienders who live in Greater London zones 3-6 which is where most refugees and asylum seekers are housed. If you live in the outer zones but within the M25, we would love to have you on board. We are also keen to recruit more men to join HostNation. If you’re female, we still want you, but please spread the word amongst men you know who might also be interested in registering!
Meanwhile please follow us onFacebookwhere we’ll keep you posted on our progress.
Please do not register if you live outside of Greater London as we are not yet in a position to take referrals from outside of the capital.
Many thanks, HostNation team
