Community Resettlement News
Bishop Eton parishioners have undertaken a commitment to apply to the Home Office through its Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme to bring a refugee family from the Middle East to live in the Parish community.
Parishioners will support the family for at least two years until it’s members have learnt English, settled into schools, received healthcare,found employment and become integrated into, and independent within, the community.
HOME CONTENTS WISH LIST
The Home Making Team needs to ensure all furnishings and equipment needed to run a family home here in Liverpool are in place before the family arrives. As you can imagine furnishing a house is no easy task. We are hoping that parishioners can help us by pledging or donating items to furnish a house.
Below we have images for each room/area we are hoping to equip. If you click on an image you will find a list of what we hope to provide along with a status field.
We are not looking for individuals or families to buy or donate right now. We are simply looking for people to commit to buy/donate in time for the arrival date of our family once it is known. Some of the larger items such as a hob and oven we expect to be already in the house.
