Grosmont Community Buddy Network.
There will be a meeting in St Nicholas Church on Wednesday 23rd from 6.30pm. We’ll aim to start at 6.40 latest.
If you will definitely be accommodating refugees, are thinking of doing so, or would just like to help support a neighbour who is, please come along to the meeting if you can.
Several villagers have already registered their interest on the government website and there are other neighbours who would like to accommodate refugees but feel that they may need some additional support to do so.
The aim of this meeting is to provide each of the host households with a ‘buddy network’ of neighbours who are willing to give regular practical help to support that placement.
For example, perhaps by giving reliable, regular help with transport, providing extra groceries, linens, sharing additional laundry, resources for children, respite breaks etc.
