Jools Promotes Syrian Refugee Welcome on Channel 4 News
Our MD Jools is continuing to promote the cause of Syrian refugees’ resettlement in Shropshire. Five families have
recently been resettled in the county from camps in the Lebanon.
Jools continues to work in close partnership with the charity Refugee Action and acts as a volunteer Refugee Advocate for the families in Oswestry. She was delighted to promote the crucial part that local people and communities can play in helping Syrian families happily settle and integrate in a recent Channel 4 news item.
“It is humbling, enormously humbling actually to spend time with the families and children. This word refugees has been so corrupted as a result of the damaging, negative, ill-informed discourse around immigration, particularly post Brexit,” said Jools. “It is a status. They are human beings. They are ordinary people who are fleeing terror, persecution and a tragedy that for most of us is utterly unfathomable.”
