Welcome to the Watford and Three Rivers Refugee Partnership

The Watford and Three Rivers Refugee Partnership (WTRRP) offers practical and emotional support in West Hertfordshire to asylum-seekers refugees and those with no recourse to public funds (NRPF), many of whom are destitute and homeless.Our mission is to help provide access to the advice and services needed, often providing long-term support until statutory services are in place.

Our Befrienders (guided by our Volunteer Co-ordinator) visit our clients, understand their needs and then, with the other members and the resources of the Project, provide services like:

  • helping fill in application forms and talking to the appropriate authorities,
  • providing basic needs including regular supplies of canned food and toiletries,
  • providing essential supplies to parents like nappies.
  • where necessary, finding ways and means to find a roof for those who are homeless,
  • helping to find legal advice, legal aid and related services.

WTRRP is not a pressure group in the area of gaining asylum or leave to remain in the UK; these are matters for other organisations. WTRRP is run by a committee with each member having defined roles and responsibilities.

WTRRP’s volunteers are discreet and are trusted by our clients. Its coordinators and Committee provide support, and review clients and their needs on a regular basis.

New volunteers are always welcome for both client contact and supporting roles: please contact , Volunteer Co-ordinator.

WTRRP now runs ESOL classes each week to help the clients develop their English language skills to be better able to live and eventually work in the UK.

WTRRP always needs donations of food, toiletries, nappies, and money. It does not receive any public funding, and gratefully acknowledges the support of many individuals and faith groups within our community. Thank you!

2018 Annual General Meeting

Our annual AGM will be held again at the Recital Hall, Nascot Wood Junior school, on Monday March 19th at 7.30 pm.

Dave Smith from the Boaz Trust will be our guest speaker. Dave founded the Boaz Trust in 2004, and he now works them two days a week to build the capacity of like-minded organisations and individuals who want to see an end to destitution amongst asylum seekers and refugees. As part of this work, Dave founded and now coordinates the National No Accommodation Network (NACCOM) which links over 35 organisations from across the country who provide accommodation to destitute refugees and migrants. Dave also seeks to campaign for an end to destitution alongside partner organisations and groups such as ‘City of Sanctuary’ and ‘Still Human, Still Here’. Dave has written two books (The Book of Boaz and Refugee Stories) based on his personal experiences and reflections having worked alongside asylum seekers and refugees over many years.
