Why we need your help

Alsager Community Sponsorship Scheme


Supporting Refugees


Alsager has been home for many refugees since the ending of the Second World War when the old Royal Marine camp at the top of Fields Road, HMS Excalibur, became a refuge for many escaping Soviet persecution and assassination.  Having lost their homes, jobs and liberties to the new Russian empire, families from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine were too fearful to return home and had to seek asylum in the United Kingdom.   

Today a new crisis has driven thousands of families from their homes across Syria.  Many of those fleeing the conflict have become trapped in refugee camps on the borders of Turkey and Lebanon.  In these camps their ethnicity can make them extremely vulnerable to persecution, abuse and even death with little if no hope of escape.

With your help Refugees Welcome and our volunteers representing ‘Alsager Community Sponsorship Scheme,’ would like to offer the safety of a home to the most vulnerable of those trapped in the camps.  These are people who have through no fault of their own lost everything they ever had in life: homes, jobs, wealth and in many cases health.  Just like us they had sort to look after their families, caring for their needs and planning for their futures.  Sadly they now find themselves reliant on handouts of food and clothes to meet their day to day needs.

Your donation will allow our Alsager volunteers at Refugees Welcome to provide a safe and secure home for a vulnerable family to live in.  It will also help us in providing for their integration into society enabling them to become valued members of our community.  This in turn will give them the ability to get jobs, develop income, care for their families needs and plan for their future.  You will be giving them back their liberty, their dignity and most of all, their hope.

Refugees Welcome would like to thank you in advance for your compassion, your help and your support as it is you who make all the difference.
