This directory was created by Liverpool Cathedral with the aim of equipping churches who want to help asylum seekers by signposting organisations that offer practical help, advice and expertise.

Welcoming the Stranger – A Guide

A ground-breaking document written by the Justice and Peace Commission in conjunction with other church leaders is published today.

The innovative guide – Welcoming the Stranger – is intended for churches and other groups to help them find a way to respond positively to the refugee crisis. With easy to read sections and important factual information the guide busts myths that have grown up to describe this national and global crisis. Importantly the document offers clear guidance and support to help church communities, and others, offer practical help as they seek to welcome the stranger.
