WHAT WE ASK OF YOU
BEFRIENDER REGISTRATION FORM
If you'd like to befriend an asylum seeker or refugee trying to find their feet here in the UK, we would love to hear from you.
We ask for an initial commitment of three months, during which we suggest a phone chat once a week and an outing at least once a fortnight. This is your opportunity to show your befriendee around, introduce them to free activities and help them participate more in UK life. They’ll have the chance to get to know a friendly local and practise their English. And you may find a real friend in the process!
London
Due to unprecedented traffic on our site over the summer, we have had to close our registration for London.
If you are keen to befriend in London through HostNation, please submit the form below so we can add you to our waiting list and be in touch as and when we need more befrienders.
Meanwhile please consider a small, regular donation to support our work.
North East
We currently have two befriending programmes in the North East of England. One operates in Teesside for asylum seekers and refugees living in Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees. The other operates in Tyneside for asylum seekers and refugees living in Newcastle and Gateshead. Please ensure you fill out the correct form.
