A Norwich group has been playing their part in helping resettle families who are escaping from Afghanistan.
The Mothers Union Norwich Diocese has been supporting vulnerable families who are cleared by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees [UNHCR] to come to Britain from the borders of Syria for five years.
And they have also helped three families come to Norwich from Afghanistan working in partnership with the county council and the Home Office.
Simon Shreeve, manager of the award-winning 'People From Abroad' social work team, said: "When weary travellers arrive at their new homes it is always a pleasure to see the delight on the faces of the parents and the excitement of the children as they explore their new homes and can relax in the knowledge that they have arrived safely."
