Refugees Welcome in Faringdon

Offer to home 10 refugee families in the Faringdon area

Why is this important?

People In the Faringdon area are privileged to have excellent local services: medical, schools, library. There is an active voluntary sector and the advantages of a lively and safe town environment in a wider rural setting. There are good transport links to Swindon and Oxford.

So let's stand up for Britain's long tradition of helping refugees fleeing war and that we, the people of the Faringdon area are proud to do our part and provide refuge to people in their hour of need.

Reasons for signing

  • We can't stand by and not help our fellow human beings who are fleeing their own homes because of war. We need to reach out to them to give them a fresh start.
  • I signed to save lives. To help and support a person in need.
