A warm welcome

As part of the British Government’s Operation Warm Welcome, a multi-departmental plan to help Afghan refugees settle in the UK, a number of initiatives have been put in place. Among these is 12 million pounds allocated for additional school places, along with transportation to and from schools, specialist teachers and English language support for students at school.

Further, while many of the adults will already be fluent English speakers due to their jobs as translators or working with the UK government and military, other adult members of their families may not be, so they will be offered free English language courses.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, “We owe an immense debt to those who worked with the armed forces in Afghanistan and I am determined that we give them and their families the support they need to rebuild their lives here in the UK.”
