Refugee Week 2016 in Wokingham Borough

Refugee_WeekW

20th to 26th June 2016 is Refugee Week and today we are highlighting some of the many different events which have been taking place across Wokingham Borough and the nearby areas.  The theme of this years Refugee Week is “Welcome” celebrating the welcome shown to refugees and asylum seekers in the UK, and seek to encourage and inspire communities to continue to welcome new arrivals in the weeks, months and years to come.

The Refugee Week website writes about why “welcome” has been chosen as the theme this year
During the second half of 2015, the ‘refugee crisis’ was accompanied by incredible acts of welcome by communities and individuals across the UK and Europe.  Some were getting involved in refugee rights for the very first time, while others were continuing the volunteering and campaigning they are committed to all year round, year on year.

Wokingham Methodist Church organised a day of prayer and reflection with resources around the theme “Different pasts, Shared futures” on Saturday 16th July.

St Nicolas Earley collected items including towels, toiletries and children’s clothes which were made into Care Packs for expectant mothers, babies and families as part of the Samara’s Aid Appeal.  The cost of delivery to the refugees in the Middle East is being funded through the sales of Ice Cream Sundaes on Sunday 3rd July.

Palmer Park United Reformed Church held a day Refugee Week Cultural Event on Sunday 26th June including prayer stations, international foods and music and a chance to get to know different cultures.

refugeeweek

Clare Hooper, from Wokingham Baptist Church is part of the steering group working with Wokingham Borough Council to work out how refugees can be supported locally and says that the process is moving along well with a suitable house being sought in the borough.  A summary of how this works is provided below by St John the Baptist Church in Crowthorne

In December 2015 a meeting of Wokingham District Council was chaired by Simon Price and subsequently addressed by: Daniel Hobbs from the Home Office, Deputy Head of the Government’s Resettlement Programme; Ray Millard, the partnership manager S.E. Strategic Partnership for Migration; Nick Hagbourne – Reading Refugee Support Group; and Zaimal Koroma – Reading Red Cross. They described their experiences in Reading. The Government has pledged to take in 20,000 refugees from the United Camps in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. Life there is very basic although the Government has already spent billions in aid there.

Of the 20,000 promised, the first 200 came in September. It was expected that 1,000 would be resettled before Christmas. Daniel Hobbs is in charge of this resettlement programme together with the help of “a team made up of local government representatives”. Of the numbers seeking resettlement there were two levels of screening including medical screening done, first in the camps and again on reaching the U.K .but those selected would match up to the following criteria: women with children on their on their own; survivors of torture; those with particular medical needs; those with problems of sexual identity.

Each local authority is being asked to house five families. Five-bedroomed houses are being sought for which the rent and maintenance would be paid over a five-year period. Support from the Overseas Development Aid would be provided. After five years the resettled family can return or apply for resettlement. A case worker and translator would accompany each party of refugees. For practical reasons the authority is hoping to find accommodation within reasonable distance of work which does present difficulties. It is probable that Wokingham’s refugees will probably be placed in the Woodley/Earley area.

You can also read this report by The Wokingham Paper which was written about this important process.

In neighbouring Reading the Reading Refugee Support Group is hosting the bid to become a Town of Sanctuary for Refugees.  RRSG help refugees and asylum-seekers overcome the many challenges they face and help them to be independent, to access their rights and to encourage their self-esteem and confidence.  This week they hosted, at Reading Film Theatre, Nicky’s Family film which tells the nearly forgotten story of Nicholas Winton, an Englishman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II.  This was followed by a Panel Discussion.

Last, but certainly not least, a Wokingham Borough resident, Rachel Bradley, has continued to inspire and encourage gossip girls (and guys) across Wokingham to donate items needed by refugees in The Jungle in Calais through the Gossip Girls in Action Facebook Group.  This group has over 1100 members who have already delivered clothing to refugees and are currently collecting food to be delivered at the same time as the colouring books and stationary items on the trip next month.  Please join this group if you would like to donate the following items:

Tuna
Coffee
Tea bags
Salt
Sugar
Tinned pulses/beans (any variety other than baked)
Rice
Tinned tomatoes
Vegetable Oil

 

These are just a selection of the collections, prayers and discussions happening across Wokingham Borough to support refugees, if you know of something else then please comment to spread the word about the good news.

 

 

 

How to… Facebook

social-media-connecting-the-world

What is Facebook?

Facebook is a community where people use their authentic identities.  A personal profile is for non-commercial use and represents an individual person.  The people in a church would have their own Facebook profiles which should reflect their lives closely; it is with these profiles that people interact with other people, pages and groups.  In order to start a Facebook page or group you must have an identity as yourself.

 

Facebook Pages

Pages are for organisations to share their stories and connect with people.  When you start a Facebook page for an organisation you are required to confirm that you are an approved representative of that organisation.   You customize Pages by publishing stories, hosting events and starting conversations. People who like your Page and their friends get updates from your Page in their News Feed.

Pages are predominantly about sharing information although some will include discussions, reviews and chats.  Facebook pages are used much like websites and should be kept current and encourage interaction and sharing of the posts onto individuals’ own timelines.

 

Facebook Groups

Groups are spaces where you can keep in touch with people by sharing updates, photos or documents.  In order to create a group you become the administrator.  Most groups will have at least two administrators and a number of other people who can ensure that the group is used appropriately and rules adhered to.  This is not a difficult thing to achieve until the size or activity of the group grows large.

Groups are places for discussion and sharing, depending on the type of group.  There are public, private, closed and secret groups.  Open groups can be read by anyone but you must be accepted as a group member before you can post or comment; closed groups can not be read by anyone except the members, who have to be approved to join; secret groups are not shown in any lists or searchable systems and members have to be invited to join.  It is important to choose which sort of group you might like; for example a prayer chain group would most likely be closed but a church chat group would be open.

Most churches will have several groups within their church, these might well be expected to be replicated on Facebook.  Identifying the groups and their admins and keeping these supported is an important thing for church leaders to undertake.

 

social media speech bubble

What are the benefits of Facebook?

Share Information
Facebook is a cross generational social media platform which appeals from teenagers through to the silver surfers in retirement.  It is often used by families to keep in touch and share news and photographs.  Facebook is used to share information both about personal lives and interests; for example people might share charity events they are involved in or campaigns they are supporting.  Individuals will share articles of interest onto their timeline so that their friends can see them; in this way news can spread rapidly.

Events
Facebook events are an excellent way to tell people about something which is going to happen.  By creating an event for the community fun day and inviting all your contacts in that community you have immediately told them about the event.  You can also share events into community groups or ask people to share events with their friends or invite their friends.  This is free to use and extremely effective with those aged 30-60 who tend to be the most connected on Facebook.

Chat
Facebook discussions, debates and other chat are becoming increasingly popular and allow groups of people to share their interests and opinions as they might do in real life.  Many churches find that discussions about sermons continue through the week and that prayer support can be requested and provided without the need for a central point.  However this requires that administrators are active and watching out for any arguments or additional needs beyond that of Facebook.

Networking
Facebook has fostered networks and friendships across the world, taking on the role of discussion boards before it, enabling strong bonds to form.  It is a fact of our current society that people do not necessarily live near to people they wish to socialise with and Facebook enables these relationships to continue and develop.  Charities and Churches are able to receive and give support to members who are geographically displaced and this is an important aspect of an organisations’ life and mission.
