I care about: Families fleeing violence, war and famine

What would it take for you to leave your home, your friends and everything you own, then put your family into an overcrowded boat? It's nearly impossible to imagine what forces someone to become a refugee. Yet communities throughout the UK are determined to offer a warm welcome.

Birmingham-in-SolidarityYou can help local community groups offer refugee families the emotional and practical support they desperately need. The goodwill and dedication is there; many even take people into their own homes. All they need is the tools to do it. 

Your support can help our academics work with these communities, to understand the challenges traumatised families face, and give community groups the knowledge to help refugees find healthcare, education and employment.
