Refugee: a person who ‘owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country…’ (Definition quoted from the 1951 Refugee Convention)

Many of us want to help in the current crisis and this site aims to provide information about how we can do that. There are a number of established and new initiatives in the city (and beyond) and we aim to bring them all together here so that people can find out what they need to know and what they can do to help.
