On National Refugee Day, Bromley Labour Group are launching our petition asking Bromley Council to reverse their decision to pull out of the agreement across London Councils to support lone refugee children.
In 2013, every local council in London pledged to take in some of the children who arrive in the UK with no family after fleeing war zones like Syria or Sudan. But Bromley Council have broken that promise by suddenly pulling out of the agreement.
The reasons Bromley Council have let down the rest of London and children who desperately need support are unclear. They only announced the decision in small print buried in lengthy council end of year accounts, which was spotted by outraged Labour Councillors.
Please sign and share the petition to call on Bromley Council to keep their promise.
