There is not any organisation working in my community with refugees that I am aware of. However, the Parents’ Association in school run a number of fundraisers and collections, such as food drives and clothes collections, to aid those who need it the most.

My school’s Home School Liaison Officer has run termly coffee mornings, whereby the parents of refugee families can voice any concerns that they may have or any help that they may need. They also have the support of other parents in similar circumstances.

I think that both music and sports are great ways to help schools and students welcome refugees to the community, as these are areas that have common overlaps internationally.
