The people of Cornwall have been very generous with donations to support refugees across Europe and the Middle-East. We are aware that some in our communities oppose the resettlement of refugees for a broad range of reasons. However, we have also witnessed first-hand how, often, these people begin to change their views when they talk to those who have had closer contact with the issues. By sharing an understanding of the sort of people who need our help, and the hideous circumstances they are escaping our communication will seek to show people how their actions can bring about the common good. Through fundraising, events and media contact the CRRN will look for ways to change hearts and minds so that Cornwall retains her identity as a place of welcome, refuge and sanctuary. A chat works better than a lecture.
