Millions of people have been forced to flee from their country to escape war, conflict, famine and abuse. Bridport is a caring and supportive community and by supporting our project you can help a family adapt as quickly as possible to their new surroundings and become valued members of our community.
We are part of the government’s Community Sponsorship Scheme for refugees and have joined around 100 other local community groups across the UK working to welcome a family to their town.
David Rickard, Leader of the Council, said: “Bridport Town Council would be happy to welcome a refugee family to our town. Supporting this initiative is another way to show our commitment to the values we embrace as a Rights Respecting Town.”
