Supporting Refugees in Cumbria

As you may already by aware, Cumbria will be welcoming just under 300 refugees over the next 3 years. Many local third sector organisations, churches and community groups have already expressed an interest in helping to support these individuals when they arrive in Cumbria. Cumbria Third Sector Network are working closely with Cumbria County Council (and other public sector organisations) to coordinate that work.

 

If your organisation is interested in being involved, please go to the Cumbria CVS website, complete and return the questionnaire that's on the website. Or download the document here.
