about us

Nottingham Arimathea Trust is a small housing charity with a clear mission to support destitute asylum seekers, newly recognised refugees and modern slavery/trafficking victims.  Arimathea was born in 2007 when there was an overwhelming need to house asylum seekers whose cases have been refused. It was initially set up by the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham of the Church of England where a house was allocated to the Trust from surplus housing stock. Fast forward more than a decade later and Arimathea now has 20 properties housing around 70 residents.
