Syrian Families Refugee Project

Care Zone has partnered with Peterborough City Council and a number of other organisations to support Syrian families being resettled in Peterborough under the UK government’s Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme.

These families have fled the conflict in Syria and have been living in refugee camps in the countries neighbouring Syria. They have all been identified as being vulnerable and in need of additional support. 

Before the families arrive, Care Zone provides furniture, and volunteer teams from KingsGate dress the houses to turn them into warm, welcoming homes for the families. Once they have arrived, Care Zone offers volunteer placements so that the families can start to integrate into the local community and improve their English skills.
