Many refugees and asylum seekers in the UK have small local networks and may be feeling more isolated and afraid during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are committed to equipping your church to continue to serve refugees and asylum seekers during this time.
Below are the resources we have designed specifically for use during the Covid-19 pandemic. Please use freely and share widely.
This page will be updated regularly with new material. If you have trouble accessing these resources please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
