Welcoming Refugees To The UK
From the moment David Cameron announced that the UK would be hosting refugees fleeing conflict in Syria, local authorities across the country have been trying to understand how best to rise to the challenge. We’ve worked closely with several of the first councils to host Syrian refugees and took a moment to reflect on our experience.
Commenting shortly after the first families had arrived in Glasgow, the Scottish Minister for Europe & International Development, Hamza Yousaf said: “I just want to welcome these people to Scotland, and assure them that despite the weather, the welcome they receive will be very warm. I want them to think of Scotland as their home.” We’ve worked with Stirling Council, West Berkshire Council and Oxfordshire County Council through an intensive period of resettlement.
