Scotland Supporting Refugees are a community of volunteers founded by Suzanne McLaughlin of Yesbar, Julie Hepburn, Sarah-Jane Walls, Alison Thewliss MP & friends.
They have a number of aims. First of all, they want to raise awareness of this humanitarian disaster and of opportunities to help. They also want to campaign for a more coordinated approach from NGOs and others. But crucially, they want to provide help – fast! The main focus will be raising funds, both to support our own efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to refugees, but also the valuable work of other organisations – large or small.
