  • Acting as a welcome and support network to those refugees who come to Lancaster and Morecambe.
  • Running education activities that educate and inform people about refugees and promote community cohesion.
  • Campaigning to ensure Lancaster and Morecambe does its fair share in providing sanctuary to people fleeing war and persecution.
