Waltham Forest Borough Council - honour your pledge to Syrian refugees

This petition had 56 supporters


We want to live in a city that welcomes diversity and provides a safe haven to those who need it. Waltham Forest has a proud history of welcoming refugees and migrants from around the world and we want this to continue.

We, the undersigned, call on Waltham Forest Council to show that our borough embraces this vision. We ask the council to honour its pledge, made in 2015 and affirmed in the Motion it passed in October 2016, to resettle 10 Syrian families under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme. We believe this is now a matter of urgency.
