We always welcome new volunteers, whether you want to join in with the things we already do or you have different skills you’d like to bring to the table.

Helping Refugees Since 2015

HHfR was established in August 2015 in response to the shocking picture of a 3 year old Syrian boy, Alan Kurdi whose body was washed up on a Turkish beach, while his family were trying to seek refuge. We are a grassroots collective of individuals who wish to aid refugees in the current humanitarian crisis and provide support for other destitute people. We have over 70 people on our Facebook messenger group, who contribute in some way helping our cause, our main facebook page is followed by over 3500 people. Our main focus is on collecting clothing and other items and raising money through events to help refugees and asylum seekers, mainly in Greece and Calais, via contacts which we have there. We also aim to raise awareness of the current situation for refugees and asylum seekers, by holding information events, we also help families in the local area who are in need.

Our Values

At HHfR, we have witnessed the power of the collective and we are able to help purely down to the goodwill and generosity of the people of Hull and the surrounding areas. Although the scale and sheer enormity of the crisis can often be overwhelming, we firmly believe that every human being deserves dignity, empathy, compassion and respect. We also believe that when individuals work together, no matter how small the gesture, we can make a difference.

Change a Life Today

There are many ways in which you can help out, from donating clothing, and housewares to volunteering with us or holding fundraiser events. Every gesture, no matter how small, can really change someone’s life for the better.
