Make this place your home

Local | 16 Apr 2021

Last month, Prime Minister Boris Johnson held a virtual meet-and-greet with four British National (Overseas) families from Hong Kong who moved to Britain last year, ahead of the opening of its pathway to citizenship for BN(O) status holders.

During the call, the PM offered a warm welcome to the families: "On behalf of the whole country, I want to say how glad we are to have you here and how proud we are that you have chosen the UK to live.

"I believe strongly in the prospects the UK can offer for those who want to make their lives here and I have no doubt that you are going to feel very much at home."

The meeting was reported to have been organized with the help of recently formed volunteer platform UKHK.

The group's website, launched on February 12, offers guidance to newly settled Hongkongers on a plethora of issues ranging from education and employment to health and housing.

It also features videos recorded by fellow Hongkongers describing their experiences moving to the UK.

What's more, UKHK has partnered with more than 400 churches in Britain to help you connect with a friendly local and find your feet in a new community. All you need to do is fill out the form online and they will take care of the rest.
