Hiraeth Hope – Community Settlement

Local services

Project Description:

This project is to research, prepare and establish community sponsored settlement – CSS in Pembrokeshire, with outreach work to other parts of West Wales.

Project Achievements:

The aim is to prepare CSS in three communities and take it to completion in at least one community as part of this project. CSS is where a group of neighbours forms a team, raises funds, finds housing and establishes and implements an action plan to settle Syrian families in their area. It is new, so this project will help to shape the scheme. Our aim is to involve the communities as fully as possible in the process to get the best outcomes for host communities and guest refugees together.

Project Beneficiaries:

Communities of Fishguard, Narberth and Newport area, Syrian refugee families.
