Refugees Welcome Haringey are calling on Cllr Claire Kober, leader of Haringey Council, to ensure the resettlement of four Syrian refugee families in the borough by Christmas 2016 via the Vulnerable Person Resettlement (VPR) scheme. The scheme is funded by central Government. Refugees will be living in private rented accommodation, not social housing, and will be entitled to work and claim benefits.

Please sign and widely share the petition:

  • Good news from Lucy and Refugees Welcome Haringey:

    Today we’ve had confirmation that Haringey Council will be resettling ten Syrian refugee families in the borough via the Vulnerable Person Resettlement scheme!


    This is a fantastic development which could not have happened without your support – thanks to everyone who has signed and shared the petition, emailed their local councillor, and tweeted their support for the campaign!


    However, so far no timescale has been announced for when the refugee families will arrive, so it’s crucial that we keep up the pressure and continue our campaign.


    Make sure your voice continues to be heard loud and clear:


    Residents of Haringey please contact your local councillors today to thank them for their role in moving this forward – and to ask them exactly when the refugee families will start to arrive in Haringey.

    There’s still time for 4 families to arrive before Christmas!


    You can find contact details for your ward councillors here.


    Please also send a polite tweet to @HaringeyCouncil @ClaireKober @anizthur and your councillors.


    If you are a landlord who is interested in renting your property to refugees coming through the scheme, or if you speak Arabic, have a TESOL qualification, or other skills and want to help, please get in touch by emailing us at


    Remember, so far not one single Syrian refugee has been resettled in our borough – so we must continue to hold Claire Kober and Haringey Council to account.


    Thank you so much for supporting our campaign!


    Rose, Lucy, and the Refugees Welcome Haringey team.
