BDC - Operation Warm Welcome

Operation Warm Welcome

A portal is now open for people, organisations and businesses to register offers of support to Afghan arrivals to the UK.

Blaby District Council has committed to assist the relocation of two families of Afghan interpreters or translators who supported British troops in Afghanistan. Afghans who assisted the UK in conflict, their families and those evacuees at highest risk will be given the chance to rebuild their lives in the UK.

From volunteering and job opportunities to professional skills to help with integration and trauma and donations of clothes and toys, those wanting to help families as they integrate into society can fill in the online form at www.gov.uk/help-refugees.

A separate form is also available for individuals, businesses and landlords who want to pledge any offers of homes to accommodate people arriving from Afghanistan. The form is available at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/afghanistan-housing-portal-offers-of-support.
