Amanda Jones, Director of the Shropshire Supports Refugees not-for-profit Community Interest Company, says: “Shropshire Supports Refugees has been supporting families resettled in Shropshire since 2016. We recognise that it is not enough to just help these few families to integrate and find their feet in a new country, but that it is our duty to also continue to raise awareness and raise the profile of refugees and asylum seekers who are still stuck in horrific circumstances around the world. Nurturing a celebratory attitude rather than just a ‘tolerating’ attitude is the way that we would like to ensure that the families who are living in Shropshire are accepted and welcomed now and into the future.”
