Home4U is a registered charity based in Cardiff that provides accommodation to people seeking asylum, who would otherwise face destitution and homelessness. Home4U largely relies on the commitment and dedication of volunteers supported by a small staff team, as well as the support of donations and funders. 

We believe that everyone should have a safe, clean and warm place to call home in the UK. At Home4U, we ensure that the properties provided to people are homely, and of a high standard. This will give a period of real respite and help to restore dignity.


'She had no home –

she had no place to meet,

 no place to talk,

she had no home –


She had a story of fear in her country

and then again


in mine –

and misery.


She had no home -

no house,

no room,

no place to sleep in safety.

She’s not allowed


And so she waits.


 She fears …

she has no life.'


A volunteer's reflection on first coming across destitution.
