From Small Beginnings – Helping refugees and asylum seekers

November 5, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

” Both Sanctuary Everywhere and Wycombe Refugee Partnership show that real change can ome from small beginnings, and all of us can act to make a difference. Come and hear their inspiring stories. 12.30 bring-and-share lunch; 1.30pm speakers.

Sanctuary Everywhere supports Quakers taking practical action and political advocacy and underpins a network of Sanctuary Meetings. Their focus is on joining local initiatives to build a culture of welcome, building alliances with groups opposing racism and working with others to change the laws on destitution, detention, deportations and removals.

Wycombe Refugee Partnership is a group of volunteers who find private sector accommodation for refugee families, deliver wrap-around support, interest free loans for deposits/rents, help with learning English, paperwork, finding jobs etc.: everything these families need to settle and become useful contributing UK residents.”
