At Herts for Refugees, we help ensure that refugees get the support and respect they deserve.

We do this by:

  • Raising money, to fund projects across Europe.

  • Collecting and distributing donations to refugees.

  • Volunteering with other organisations on the ground in France.

  • Supporting new arrivals in Hertfordshire.

We’re delighted that you’ve found us and welcome any help that you can offer – be that donations, time, money, transport, storage or ideas for fundraising. 

Please get in touch if you’d like to contribute, even if you’re not sure what you’d like to do. We love new volunteers!

Volunteering is at the heart of everything we do. Everyone at HfR is a volunteer, including the trustees. If you are interested in getting involved, whether it’s for an hour locally or a full weekend in France (when restrictions allow), we need help with everything; from loading vans to applying for grants to baking cakes for fundraising. There is something for everyone to do so please get in touch..!
