Ceredigion Member of Parliament Mark Williams has supported calls for a National Homes Register after huge numbers of people across the UK offered to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis by housing a refugee.
There has been a strong response to the refugee crisis from people throughout Ceredigion, Wales and the UK over the past several weeks, with many people asking what action they could take to help alleviate the crisis. Many have offered to house a refugee in their own home and have been calling for a way to register their willingness to do so.
Mark said “The response of people in Ceredigion to the refugee crisis has been absolutely fantastic, and it is important that we enable people to help in whatever way they can. One such idea is a voluntary national homes register for those who are able and generous enough to accommodate the most vulnerable refugees. This would help engage people in the resettlement program and help to show where capacity exists to house those who have escaped great hardship and suffering.”
