Operation Welcome

Operation Welcome

In the coming days and weeks, Blaby District and the wider Leicester/Leicestershire area will be welcoming Afghans who supported the UK in conflict as they rebuild their lives in the UK.

We'll be assisting the relocation of two families of Afghan interpreters or translators for British troops.

A portal is now open for people, organisations and businesses to register offers of support to Afghan arrivals to the UK.

If you want to help families as they integrate into society, the online form below has a list of support you can offer, including:

  • Clothes and toys
  • White goods
  • Kitchenware
  • Furniture
  • Befriending

Offers of Housing Support

A separate form is also available for individuals, businesses and landlords who are in a position to pledge accommodation and housing support to Afghans settling in the UK.

This includes the type and number of properties you can offer, and whether this will be charitable or commercial support. You can find a link to the portal below.
