What we do
By empowering people with information, advice and targeted practical support we enable individuals to achieve independence. Through proactive casework, we challenge unfair decisions and processes that make people’s lives harder.
Room for Refugees - Ukraine Programme
Positive Action in Housing pioneered refugee hosting in the UK in 2002. We run the Room for Refugees Network — the UK's longest established refugee hosting programme. We have 20 years of expertise in responding in a refugee crisis. To date we have sheltered over 4,000 refugees. We have 16,000 fully registered hosts. Over 500 refugee, emergency and homelessness organisations, including the British Red Cross, all Refugee Councils, Freedom from Torture, Migrants Organise, The Passage refer their clients to us, and we process hostings on our REFER online platform. We have hosts in every part of the U.K. and are now assisting Ukrainian and other refugees to find homes and navigate the visa application process.
