    Hi there,
    I went to an event about refugees yesterday with a panel and discussion with the audience. Coming out of the discussion it seems the biggest problem refugees face here is that people don’t understand their ability to contribute to the country and, whilst we generally feel we should help, we’re often not so willing to help directly.
    I was wondering what I could do to help and then realised I’d be being a bit hypocritical if I’m thinking about changing other people’s attitudes but not really doing anything myself.
    We have a spare room and so I’m looking at how I can offer this to a refugee.
    Does anyone have any experience of housing refugees or know where I can find out more about it?
    Do let me know if you have any suggestions.
    Cheers,
    Simon

    So, I’ve been looking into it and registered our spare room on http://www.paih.org/host-a-refugee/

    It was very easy and they’re going to get in touch as soon as they find someone they think might be suitable.

    I’ll send an update here when I have more news.

    Do let me know if you have and suggestions or advice.

    Cheers,

    Simon
