Sanctuary Hosting matches homeless asylum seekers, refugees and vulnerable migrants to people with spare rooms who are prepared to have someone to stay with them rent free, for a predefined period of time, whilst the individual is receiving support to explore routes out of destitution.
A Host is someone who generously accommodates a refugee, migrant or asylum seeker in their own home. This is usually in a spare room.
It is up to the host to decide how long they are willing to accommodate someone. This could be for just a few days – or considerably longer. You can always decide to extend the period of time you are offering if things are going really well, but we recommend always making it clear when the arrangement is due to end.
We aim to be as flexible as possible. You can decide your own living arrangements with your guest, including whether or not they can have a key and if they can be home during the day alone or should be out of the house during certain hours. If you go on holiday or ever need a break, we can try to arrange another host to cover for you (but please give as much notice as possible). If you need your room back suddenly, Sanctuary Hosting will work to find an alternative host/room for the guest as quickly as possible.
