‘Refugees Welcome MK’ is working together with the council to secure accommodation for the families, as part of the Government’s Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme.

Employees from software firm White Clarke Group have been raising money to buy household items and other essentials to help the families resettle.

“There has never been a prouder moment for White Clarke Group,” said group executive vice president Brendan Gleeson.

“I really appreciate the way everyone has come together to help and I hope other companies will join us to give these families an opportunity to start a new and brighter life in Milton Keynes,” he added.
