Welcome House is a local registered charity, set up in 2020, working across Hull and East Riding, offering a warm welcome and support to asylum seekers and refugees in order to make them feel safe, included and supported, in collaboration with Hull City Council, people, civil, business, charitable and public sector organisations, faith communities, volunteers and staff under the auspices of the Board of Trustees.
Welcome House strive to harness the skills and commitment of refugees and those seeking asylum as well as professionals and volunteers. They co-create their services with partners and, most importantly, refugees and asylum seekers. Welcome House aspires to see asylum seekers and refugees empowered to build and lead fulfilling lives, connected to local services, integrated with local communities and actively contributing to society in the Hull & East Yorkshire area. The services they provide include non-immigration advice with support from partners, cultural awareness, social integration, welfare support & food parcels, among many more essential services that refugees may need.
The charity exists to provide a place of welcome, safety, care and compassion for asylum seekers and refugees where they can start to rebuild their lives and be empowered to engage positively with the wider community. They provide a platform for the community of Hull and East Yorkshire to embrace asylum seekers and refugees. Welcome House and their partners are experts in transforming that generosity into enabling those seeking asylum and refuge to have the confidence, skills and resources to invest back in the community that has welcomed them and fulfil their potential.
Having recently re-located to a building within the heart of Hull city centre the facility is a great base for the array of activities that Welcome House like to hold regularly. Service users are always encouraged to join in events like day trips, art & music sessions, befriending services, coffee mornings and so many more.
