Refugees Welcome in Northampton

Please offer to home a minimum of 50 refugee families and offer a space for local people to donate food and essential items, a space where they can also befriend refugees and help with language skills and access to local services.

Why is this important?

Aylan, the toddler who drowned fleeing Syria, was just three years old. His town was under attack by Isis. His five year old brother and his mum also died trying to reach safety.

Yet our prime minister is reluctant to accept more refugees any where near the numbers accepted in neighbouring European countries. 38 Degrees members care about the fate of refugees and all peoples fleeing conflict, violence, and oppression. We don't want Britain to be the kind of country that turns its back as people drown in their desperation to flee places like Syria.

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