If none of these are possible, then there’s still loads you can do to lend support to our cause.

  • Follow us on Twitter or Facebook, and help us get our messages to a wider audience.
  • Read our website, and find out more about the reality of seeking refuge in Leeds.
  • Use the information you find to challenge some of the myths about migration.
  • Be kind to strangers, and give people the time of day.

We think all of this helps to make Leeds a kinder, safer, more welcoming place – and we’re grateful for any support you can offer. Thank you.
