Compassion on Valentine's Day

On Valentine’s Day, we are supporting a more compassionate approach to refugees


‘Together With Refugees’ is a coalition of over 300 national and local organisations, who believe in showing compassion to refugees. Members include refugee-led groups and those representing people with lived experience of the asylum system, faith, student, women’s rights, human rights and LGBT+ groups, trade unions, housing organisations, legal and advice centres, international development NGOs and arts projects, among others.


‘Together With Refugees’ is founded on a simple, but powerful, set of shared convictions: how we treat refugees is about who we are. At our best, we are welcoming and kind to those facing difficult times. If any one of us feared for our lives or for the lives of our loved ones, we’d want to know that others would help us to safety.


Together, we are calling for a better approach to supporting refugees that is more effective, fair and humane. This means standing up for people’s ability to seek safety in the UK no matter how they came here, and ensuring people can live in dignity while they wait for a decision on their asylum application. It means empowering refugees to rebuild their lives and make valuable contributions to their communities. And it means the UK working with other countries to do our bit to help people who are forced to flee their homes.
