Citizens UK and Arthur Mellows Village College
Since last year Arthur Mellows has been part of Citizens UK which is a national community organising group.
The Peterborough group have been working on campaigns including improving safety in Peterborough; developing the mental health support services available for young people, particularly the first response service at PCH and creating a welcome group for the Afghan Refugees. AMVC has a small group of Year 12 students who have been working with Ms Kavanagh on some of these projects and recently we went leaflet dropping in the local community to support the Homes for Refugees campaign. This is an exciting campaign to try to get private landlords to lease their homes to the LA for Afghan and Ukrainian refugees arriving to the UK. The leaflet is attached to this bulletin should you be able to support in any way. Over the coming weeks the AMVC team have been offered a house to clean and furnish for a refugee family and we hope to update on this project in the next bulletin.
