Many Sefton residents and partners including local faith communities have been in touch with Sefton Council to offer support to the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis and to ask how they can help.

We would like to thank you for all of the generous offers of support so far.

Our housing team will be collating details of accommodation from our existing networks and when we have further information from the government about who will be arriving in the UK and when, we can assess what is suitable.

However, if you would like to see what else you can do, please refer to our Refugees page with some useful links on how your help can assist.
