Our Hosts welcome young people into their homes and provide a warm meal, somewhere safe to stay and are there to listen if young people want to talk.

Each year we accommodate and support around 100 young people in the County out of homelessness and into housing.

Phone Credit for Refugees

Phone Credit For Refugees is an organisation that provides vital phone credit to refugees and displaced adults and children across Europe. From humble beginnings, the organisation was set up in February 2016 as a Facebook group by founder James Pearce after his volunteering trip to the Calais 'Jungle'. Today, the group has over 58,000 members and has expanded to help refugees across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. They give the gift of communication to people who are separated from family and friends, miles away from home and in very uncertain circumstances. For many unaccompanied children their phone credit is the only safety net they have.
