Britain is a welcoming country

Members of the Allerdale and Copeland local committees of Cumbria County Council have been listening to a presentation this morning of the refugees from troubled areas over the world who have come to Cumbria, from Syria and Afghanistan to Ukraine, and about how they are supported.

It took a while to get off the ground, from which we need to learn lessons, but now more than 100,000 Ukrainians have arrived in the UK through our Family Scheme and Homes for Ukraine sponsorship scheme.   

Thank you to everyone across the UK who has opened their home to those forced to flee Ukraine due to Putin's barbarism.
