Hampstead Churches welcomes

On October 25th, members from WSF including Emily, Michele and Beate, went to meet the newly arrived Syrian family who were sponsored by the Hampstead Churches group. It was an emotional event for all involved, but helpful for us to see the result of months of careful planning. Keir Starmer as local MP attended along with members from Citizens UK Sponsor Refugees team.

The family was definitely well surrounded if a bit overwhelmed by the reception. It is clear that they will need a lot of support to settle in – and local ‘befrienders’ will be really important.
