Take a stand on World Refugee Day and show politicians you want a better plan for people seeking safety.


We’re joining forces with people across the UK this World Refugee Day to call for a fair new plan for refugees. And we need your help.

In the lead up to the General Election, we want to show politicians from all parities that most people want a kinder, fairer and more effective refugee system.

Please join us by showing your support this World Refugee Day.

It’s so easy to take part. Just download this picture and share it on social media on Thursday 20 June, with a message of solidarity and the hashtag #FairBeginsHere.

You can write your own message or use the suggested wording below:

This #WorldRefugeeDay I’m calling for a fair new plan for refugees.
With a General Election around the corner, it’s time to come together to reject hostility & division & stand for something better. #FairBeginsHere
Take action now

Fair Begins with Us

The current UK government keeps saying that hostile refugee policies are what people want. They don’t speak for us and we know that many others feel the same.

In fact, a recent poll commissioned by Together With Refugees found that 80% of people in Britain want an asylum system that is well-managed, fair and compassionate.

Too many people are trapped in our cruel and uncaring asylum system. Prevented from working. Separated from friends and family. Living in fear of being sent to Rwanda.

These policies aren’t working for refugees or local communities. It’s time for something better.

Read more about the Fair Begins Here campaign and how you can get involved this World Refugee Day. 

The louder our voice becomes, the harder it will be for the next UK government to ignore.
