Syrian refugee support

The Civil War in Syria has resulted in one of the worst humanitarian crises of the 21st century. In his statement to the House of Commons on 7 September 2015, the Prime Minister announced that Britain should resettle up to 20,000 Syrian refugees over the rest of the Parliament. These will be some of the most vulnerable people affected by the conflict in Syria.

Councils across the country were asked by the Home Office to bid to take part in the scheme by agreeing to resettle a number of refugees in their area.  South Gloucestershire Council have agreed to take part in the scheme and play our part in helping those who are most in need.


A big lunch event has been organised for 30 June from 2pm – 5pm at Manor Hall, Coalpit Heath to celebrate refugee week.  Everyone is very welcome to attend. Find out more
