Then we will contact you to find out more about you and who you would like to meet. We try to make a good match with one of the people on our database, who we have checked carefully. They are called your befriender.
We always match women with women. If you are a man, we may match you to a male or a female. This is because we have more female befrienders on our list.
Important: we are NOT a dating site. This is not a place to find a girlfriend or boyfriend.
YOU CAN APPLY IF:
You are an asylum seeker or refugee.
You live in Greater London or Teesside.
You are over 18.
You speak some English and have a mobile phone.
You have someone who can refer you to us.
You are not in crisis with your asylum case, mental health or housing.
You are going to be living in the same area for the next six months.
You like the idea of making a new friend and finding out more about your new home.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
It can be very hard moving to a new country. You will feel more at home with a local friend by your side.
