We are extremely excited about the arrival of the first Syrian family in early February. The family, 2 adults and 2 children, have been resettled in Ely through the Vulnerable People Relocation Scheme. Cambridge City Council are responsible for the process of resettlement and we have been working with them to welcome the family to Ely. They are settling in well.

With the help of many of our supporters we were able to supply all the soft furnishings for their new home. We also provided a Welcome Pack with groceries and other essential items.

Our next major step is to find another house that we can offer to another family. Please get in touch if you have a vacant property, one that is becoming vacant soon or if you know anyone that does.
