Welcome Summit (Birmingham on Saturday 10 September)

Christian Aid Welcome SummitCitizens UK and Christian Aid invite you to The Welcome Summit in The Saffron Centre in Birmingham on Saturday 10 September.

It’ll be a year since the images of the tragic death of Alan Kurdi flashed around the world and injected an urgency and awareness to the response in Europe and further afield.

The gathering of groups behind the Refugees Welcome movement across the UK will come together and take stock of the British response to the refugee crisis to date, celebrate what we’ve achieved, and most importantly to gain the skills we’ll need to build a more welcoming Britain.

There will also be the opportunity to take directly ask politicians and UN agencies about key issues including the protection of refugee children, development of community sponsorship, as well as strengthening our communities.
