For many years, NACCOM members across the UK have been operating hosting schemes that provide an essential pathway out of destitution and homelessness for people in the asylum and immigration system.
Hosting is simply where someone offers a private room and access to shared facilities in their own home to a person or persons in need, free of charge. As well as giving those fleeing war, conflict and persecution a safe, temporary home, hosting can provide vital stability to enable guests to resolve their immigration status and move forward with their lives.
Hosting can be a rewarding experience for both hosts and guests when the right time, support and consideration has been given to facilitating a positive and safe hosting arrangement.
Below you will find a range of ‘good practice’ resources and guidance, developed by NACCOM in consultation with our members, to ensure that individuals and organisations that are considering, or are involved in, hosting can make an informed decision and can participate in hosting safely and with the right support.
