Hello Cardiff! Helo Caerdydd!

We’re making it fun and easy for you to welcome refugees to your city. If you love the idea of helping refugees but don’t know where to start, this is for you, don’t miss out!

Our launch events in Cardiff are now fully booked. The response from the people of Cardiff has been amazing.

We’ll be back in March with regular meals. You’ll cook and eat lunch with refugees alongside other people, like you, who want to make them feel at home. It’ll be an amazing experience (because our meals always are) and you’ll be part of keeping the meals going in your community.

Interested? Leave your details below and we’ll send you an invitation in a few weeks.




On the fence about whether or not you’re coming? Here are some concerns we think you might have and some lovely reassurances.

Sounds great, but I’m really busy and I’m worried I won’t be able to commit the time.

Don’t worry. Local Welcome has been designed for people like you. All you need to commit to is a 2-3 hours, one weekend a month.

I love this idea but I’ve got no idea what to say to a refugee, what if I say the wrong thing or upset them, or we can’t understand each other?

We hear you and we understand. That’s why we’ve spent three years designing our meals so that they’re 100% awkwardness free. There’s not enough space here to tell you how, but trust us, come along and see for yourself.

What will we be cooking?

Delicious and yummy things! Everything is veggie by default, and we can also make meals vegan, gluten-free and dairy free too. There’s a box you can tick to tell us about your dietary requirements when you book your place.

Can I bring friends?

Yes! Local Welcome meals are perfect for groups of mates. We even had a whole dodgeball team once! Just send everyone you want to invite the link to this page and ask them to sign up.  

Will I be ok to come on my own?

Yes! Local Welcome meals are perfect for people flying solo. There’ll be no awkward shuffling around at the back for you - you’ll have a place at one of our tables and by our calculations will have made a new friend within about 30 seconds of entering the building.
