Overview

Newport is currently home to about 450 asylum seekers and a larger number of refugees. We show care and concern in a practical way by supporting people from refugee and asylum seeker communities. We do this by building friendships, by restoring a sense of belonging and community and by providing practical and emotional support.

Achieved to date

Our first Green Pastures house is pending.

Why we do this

Relationships are at the heart of the project, and we always focus on the individual people, not projects. Whether refugees and asylum seekers, those homeless and vulnerably housed people who need a bed for the night or victims of human trafficking - we want to do all we can to make them feel welcome in our communities and provide them with what they need to build fruitful and fulfilling lives. We are driven by our belief that everyone is valued and by the Bible's teaching to show compassion to the most vulnerable members of society. All our services are open to those of any faith or of none.

Future Plans

Our first Green Pastures house is pending.

green pastures review

The Gap Wales are an exceptional charity with an outward focus and care for the community. We are so impressed by their care and passion and it is a pure joy to work alongside Mark and the team in planning for the future! We are looking forward to supporting them in continued growth and to see them transform lives for the glory of God. We have no doubt they will play a pivotal role in ending homelessness in the UK!
