Supporting Refugees In Schools
When Ukrainian refugees start to arrive here it’s important that children and families are helped to integrate into British society. If you come across Ukrainian refugees in a school, then please connect them with Leeds Development Education Centre. They can offer invaluable help to schools in connecting children from different backgrounds and nationalities together. Please see this link: https://leedsdec.org.uk/projects/ (Scroll down to the section on School Linking) or email:firstname.lastname@example.org
