A local charity have launched a new scheme encouraging people to open their hearts and their homes to provide those fleeing from persecution a safe place to stay. Can you help?

Action Hosting open evening at The CastleGate, Melbourne street NE1 2JQ

Newcastle based organisation, Action Foundation, have been live with their hosting scheme for over 6 months, and we are looking for new volunteer hosts. We are holding open evenings to talk about our scheme. If you have a spare room and would like to help someone who is homeless, then hosting may suit you.

The dates for the evenings are:

·       Wednesday 29th March 1800-1900

·       Wednesday May 10th 1800-1900

·       Wednesday June 21st 1800-1900

Our scheme helps destitute asylum seekers in the Tyne and Wear area. Hosts will provide a safe place to sleep, for people who have nowhere else to go, for an agreed and defined amount of time. We will provide full induction training to all hosts who are who are eligible to become part of the scheme.

Would you like to find out more?  Come to our meeting and we can tell you how the scheme works and what support we will give you. There is more information about the scheme here: www.actionfoundation.org.uk/projects_hosting.html.
