Welcoming Syrian Families

Susan Bush, chair of the One Northallerton Refugee Support group, says the five main churches in the town are working well together to support the Syrian families who arrived in Northallerton in January. Some volunteers are involved in teaching English, others in hearing the children read English; some help the adults to improve their IT skills & yet others help the families to integrate into the British way of life. There have been social events such as a Welcome Meal for all the families, a visit to a local farm at lambing time, and a trip to Scarborough to meet up with other Syrian families in North Yorkshire
