Together With Refugees - Refugee Council

Together With Refugees

New UK Government policies abandon people fleeing war and persecution. We’re calling for a more humane approach to people seeking protection in the UK.

We are proud founding members of Together With Refugees, a new coalition of national and local organisations, refugees living in Britain, and people from all walks of life who believe in showing compassion to people fleeing war, persecution or violence.

Fair Begins Here

Fair Begins Here is a new campaign from Together with refugees that calls for a fair new plan for refugees with:

  • Protection for people fleeing war and persecution by upholding the UK’s commitment under international law to the right to claim asylum and by scrapping the Rwanda scheme.
  • A proper strategy for welcoming refugees by ensuring fair, rapid decisions on their application for asylum, and the chance to rebuild their lives through settling in a community, being allowed to work and the chance to learn English.
  • Stronger global cooperation to tackle the root causes that force people to flee their homes and provides positive solutions when they do, including through safe routes to refugee protection.

Share your action! Sharing campaign actions on social media is a great way to spread the message and raise awareness. Make sure you share about the activities you take part in, along with any photos, and tag us @RefugeeCouncil.
