An enormous thank you to everyone for the fantastic response to our appeal for household items for the first few Syrian families arriving in Suffolk over the coming weeks. Your generosity is appreciated hugely. Please note, we now have all the items we need for the time being, but please see the info below and follow the links for other ways in which you can help. Once we know when the next Syrian refugees will be arriving we will again update you with what is needed.

We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who might have storage space in the Ipswich area for bulky items – if you can help with this, please contact

You can volunteer your time as a befriender, interpreter, driver and more here.

You can make a financial donation to our work here.

If you have household items looking for a good home in the meantime, you might like to consider donating them to:
