Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees – CWR – is a local volunteer organisation that aims to ensure that refugee families in Cheltenham feel welcomed and supported from the moment they move in. We work in the community to raise awareness of the refugee crisis, and aim to build a more inclusive society through vocal support of resettlement and asylum.
We engage with local schools to give assemblies, hold regular public meetings to share information and speak with local people, and seek to locate suitable housing for larger or single-person families so that more people can be offered homes.
We also arrange monthly community cafe events to help families to meet up, have fun, and practice language skills. We also hold a full roster of annual National Refugee Week celebration events.
