The plight of those affected by the conflict in Syria and the resulting refugee crisis has touched us all. Refugees Welcome, powered by Citizens UK, has been at the forefront of responding locally and nationally.
Working with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), the UK government has pledged to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees, 3000 children (and their families) from the region and an unspecified number of unaccompanied refugee children from the camps in Europe.
In South London, we are determined to be at the forefront of this effort and make our communities as welcoming as possible for our new neighbours.
