Stand as One

Join the campaign to reunite refugee families

Imagine what it would be like to flee your home and leave your family behind. Oxfam is calling for a change to the rules on family reunion so that it's easier for refugees to be joined by their loved ones.

Discover the lives and experiences of refugees before writing compelling postcards to MPs on the issue of family reunion. Develop empathy and be a part of the campaign to change the law.
