Please find attached an update on the situation regarding refugee families, particularly those settling in our area. There is also some information if you are interested in looking after unaccompanied children – lighter touch checks for prospective foster carers of refugees are planned.
Housing is becoming a big issue which is also explained along with information on how you can make a financial donation to support Syrian refugee families in Wiltshire.
I would be very grateful if you could forward this information to any individuals or groups that you are part of. The more people who know of the current needs, the better so that we can find the help which is needed.
Many thanks for your continued support of these families who have suffered so much but who are striving to make the very best of the new opportunities they have been offered.
Apologies if you receive this email more than once!
