Vicky had a great time with year 11 students at Brighouse High School today, talking to them about our work and the reality of living as an asylum seeker in the UK. Hopefully we'll be back there to talk to year 9 soon.

Labour of Love

This befriender scheme has recently been revived by the Refugee Council and provides vital support to many pregnant women who feel isolated and alone. Something similar in Calderdale would be fantastic! This is where the Calderdale Valley of Sanctuary can provide a fundamental building block in connecting groups and individuals that can make projects like this happen in our Valley. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/dec/17/labour-love-volunteer-doulas-helping-fellow-refugees
