Refugees Welcome Hounslow (RWH) is preparing to support several Afghan families who have arrived in the borough as part of the UK Government’s ARAP resettlement scheme.

The local action group, founded five years ago, has been working in partnership with Hounslow Council to welcome families, couples and single people displaced by the war and conflict.

As well as helping source accommodation, RWH gathers household items needed by the new arrivals and provides ongoing support through its befriending scheme. It matches volunteers with individual households to offer friendship and practical support, particularly with improving English language skills and with job seeking. RWH also aims to promote social inclusion, and holds regular events that bring refugees and volunteers together.

RWH is always keen to hear from potential volunteers and would like to invite anyone who is interested to its Annual General Meeting. This is taking place on Monday 15 November at 7.30pm in Isleworth.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chNovember 14, 2021. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
