West Oxfordshire District Council have provided an update on their efforts to support Afghan refugee resettlement.
Councillor Michele Mead, Leader of the Council, said; “The recent events in Afghanistan, and the suffering experienced by people fleeing the country under threat of violence, make us feel thankful we live in a free, democratic society.
“At West Oxfordshire District Council we are committed to playing our part to support those fleeing persecution, especially when many of those Afghan families currently entering the country have supported our military over recent years. We have been working closely with partners for months to prepare for the current refugees entering the country."
Robert said: "I thank WODC for this positive update on the work they are doing to ensure we play our part to support those fleeing persecution in Afghanistan.
"Some years ago, when I was a District Councillor, I led the committee tasked with relocating Syrian refugees in West Oxfordshire - so I know first-hand just how supportive and welcoming our area is."
