Discussing refugees

About this advice document

How we talk about refugees matters. If we don’t combat the Government’s xenophobic rhetoric towards people seeking sanctuary in the UK, it will be impossible to generate support for a humane approach which welcomes those in need of protection. Below is some advice, put together with the help of other organisations working on refugee rights and welfare, on how to talk about refugees in a way that combats negative stereotypes and begins to build compassion for those seeking our help.
