About Us

It was the photograph of Alun Kurdi that caused Church leaders from diverse denominations to gather together and ask "What part can the Church play to make a difference in this crisis?" From this, we formed Church Response For Refugees.

Church Response For Refugees works to support churches, charities and community groups to become Community Sponsors. Walking them through the process of team formation, fundraising support, action plan completion and the writing of a comprehensive safeguarding policy to enable these groups to welcome a Syrian Refugee Family.

For Refugees is a project of the Audacious Foundation and is based in their offices in Manchester, but operates UK wide, with a specific remit as regional coordinators for the East Midlands and the South East in partnership with Reset Communities and Refugees
