I'm sure you, like many of us, have been moved by the pictures of people fleeing Syria, and appalled by David Cameron's response.
Here are some practical things you can do to make a difference:
- Sign the petition demanding that our Government takes in more refugees: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/105991
- Drop off some of your unwanted clothes; tents; pots and pans and other things at one of the drop off points on this map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?usp=sharing&mid=z0IlKDKjh8U0.kynDNxGpqDP4
- Donate something from this Amazon wishlist: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wishlist/1P2RJO27Q6N2T/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_v
- Offer to help resettle refugees through Citizens UK: http://www.citizensuk.org/save_lives_by_helping_resettle_refugees

The men, women and children we're seeing in the media are fleeing one of the most horrific conflicts in living memory. They are refugees, not migrants. Everything you can do to help, no matter how big or small is hugely appreciated.
