St Paul’s is a great community where refugees can find family. We are really well placed to enable those who have recently arrived in the UK to meet others in Ealing, help them to learn English and to settle in a new place. We are part of the ‘Welcome Churches’ Network which connects local churches to refugee families who have been housed in Ealing, either temporarily in hotels or more permanently in flats or houses. We are able to help via a number of existing ‘Love Your Neighbour’ ministries including Besom, CAP Job Club, The Language School and others.
How can I get involved?
Here are two ways that we can get involved in welcoming refugees who have arrived in Ealing: 1) Offering to meet and befriend those who have recently arrived here, including showing people around Ealing and the local area. 2) Donating brand new items of furniture or equipment, especially for mothers and children (there is a specific list of items that are needed which you can get from Jo Smith). Collections & deliveries will be via the Besom team.
If you would like to get involved in any way, please contact our Social Action Co-Ordinator, Jo Smith – firstname.lastname@example.org
