Giving refugees and migrants a brighter hope for tomorrow.
We want to ensure that all those who arrive into our community as refugees, asylum seekers or migrants receive the warmest of MK welcomes.
Welcome MK is an emerging movement of people passionate about giving refugees and migrants what they need for today and a brighter hope for tomorrow.
From the meeting of immediate needs to helping find a settled home, education and employment, we work to bring hope to the individuals and families who often arrive into our community with nothing but the clothes they are wearing.
Born out of the Afghanistan response
As hundreds of families from Afghanistan have arrived across Milton Keynes in recent weeks, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of individuals, council partners, charities, faith communities and businesses who have worked to give them the best of starts in the UK.
Rather than let that momentum disappear, and because the needs of the Afghan families are likely to remain with us for some time, representatives from these groups have come together to form Welcome MK.
There are plenty of ways you can support our response for all those that have arrived from Afghanistan.
