Last Step: Welcome Agreement

A good welcome includes:
  • Meeting the person as soon as they arrive in the local community - ideally within the first week of their arrival.
  • Meeting up socially with the person.
  • Inviting the person to join in with community activities that the church runs.
  • Showing the person around the local community.
  • Introducing the person to more people living in the local area. The more people they meet, the more they can choose for themselves where they want to belong in the local community.
Join the UKHK Network
UKHK Network
Welcome Churches also provides the UKHK Network, a network of churches that are Hong Kong Ready and are offering a welcome to the thousands of those arriving in the UK from Hong Kong.  We recognise that those who are arriving in the UK from Hong Kong aren’t coming as refugees, but we know that it is still important that they receive a good welcome when they arrive. And what better place to get that welcome than from the local church!

Welcome Boxes
Welcome Boxes is an excellent way for newly-arrived asylum seekers and refugees to meet people from your church and find their way around the local area. Send your trained volunteers to deliver a box filled with small gifts and local information to refugees who have recently arrived in your area and give a warm welcome to them. Our Welcome Boxes project gives you all of the training, resources and online referral and feedback systems you need to manage an effective project, enabling you to successfully welcome those seeking refuge in your community.
Thank you. We will contact you with some further information about running Welcome Boxes
