Welcome to asylum seekers and refugees

Our cities are friendlier places with a local by your side

Meeting a friend through HostNation

We help find local friends for refugees and asylum seekers.


It's a great way to find out about life here in the UK, to practise your English and to explore new places.

We will introduce you to one another, usually on a video call. You then meet face to face for outings to places like local cafes, parks, markets or museums.


You both start with a promise to meet regularly for three months. Many of our friendships go so well that they continue for years!

I got my best friend
