Barrow community comes together to welcome asylum seekers

Barrow has once again demonstrated its warmth and community spirit, with local groups coming together to welcome people who have been forced to flee their home country and seek asylum in the UK.

Supported by Cumbria CVS, staff and volunteers from groups including Furness Refugee Support Group, Salvation Army, Furness Multi-Cultural Forum, St Mark’s Church and local sports facilities are working together to support our new residents with welcome events, English classes, finding their way around town – and helping them find clothing suitable for the Cumbrian weather!
