Refugees Offer Their Tents on Airbnb
The ‘Refugee Airbnb’ Which Lets You Offer Your Spare Room To A Syrian In Need
Homes for Syrians matches spare rooms with refugees in need of somewhere to stay short term
Have you been watching the Syrian refugee crisis unfold and wondering if there’s anything practical you can do to help, beyond donating money and clothes?
A new website has been set up which matches spare rooms with Syrian refugees in need of somewhere to stay short-term.
Somerset based Digital Project Manager Richard Moore had the idea for the project in September last year, when the Syrian migrant situation had reached crisis-point.
The website he went on to create, Homes For Syrians, lets you offer up a spare room (or spare house if you’re lucky enough to have one) to a Syrian refugee in need who has been granted asylum and a work permit. ‘The site started off working a little like Airbnb’ says Richard, who hoped the scheme would help newly arrived refugees integrate into UK life, ‘it is by no means a permanent solution, more of a stepping stone to their future resettlement and independence.’
So far more than 200 homeowners have signed up for the scheme and 7 refugees have been placed. The homes range from family houses in London, Oxfordshire and Southampton to a croft in Shetland.
