Thanks to everyone who turned out for the well-attended CAFOD Share the Journey rally this weekend, bringing attention to the need for Governments the world over to support international agreements on refugees coming before the United Nations later this year. I’m honoured to have been invited to speak on this serious matter, and I’m glad CAFOD have committed to helping protect the vulnerable and raise awareness with events like this.

Reuniting families who’ve been separated by war and persecution is so important for helping people rebuild their lives together after deeply traumatic events.

The Government must meet its obligations to refugees by campaigning for these goals at the UN later in the year – we can’t stand by and watch families be torn apart through no fault of their own.
