Major New Group Launches – ‘Welcome MK’
(plus other key links below)

 

In a previous posting we were delighted to announce the formation of a new group called ‘Welcome MK’.  Now we invite you to visit their website at WelcomeMK.org where you will find information about their aims, activities, how you can help, and links to the multiple groups in Milton Keynes with whom they are collaborating.  Here are some key snippets from their website:

 

From the Welcome MK Home Page :

“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.”

 

From the Welcome MK ‘What we do’ page:

“We exist to help bring a co-ordinated response to any situation where refugees have arrived into Milton Keynes and are in need.

We do this in 3 ways:

1 We put people first. This means we seek to build relationships with the individuals and families that arrive in Milton Keynes, whether they are with us for a few days or staying permanently.

2 We identify individual needs and work with experienced partners to ensure that each individual and family receives what it needs in the short and longer term.

3 We build systems and processes to ensure that funds raised, items donated, or volunteers’ time is used with maximum efficiency and for maximum impact.”

(RWMK adds: We will continue to provide prominent links to Welcome MK as they ramp up their capabilities to fill an important space in much-needed service provision for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in the greater Milton Keynes area.)
