We have written an open letter to the leader of the Scottish Conservatives Ruth Davidson MSP.
The letter asks Ruth Davidson to are stand up for Scottish values and be the voice for child refugees within the Conservative Party.

This year our Government in Westminster has refused to accept any lone child refugees, despite promising to take in hundreds.
Scotland is pulling its weight on the refugee crisis, but we are also united in wanting to do more. We need Ruth to speak up for child refugees within the Conservative Party to help us lift the cap on the Dubs scheme and secure safe and legal routes for child refugees.
If you have Twitter I need you to tweet Ruth to ask if she will meet with me and other Refugee Welcome groups in order to understand the child refugee crisis.
“@RuthDavidsonMSP will you meet with #RefugeeWelcome groups to discuss safe routes for #ChildRefugees to Scotland?”
If you don’t have Twitter, please can you email or write to Ruth (you can find Ruth’s details here) to ask her to meet Refugee Welcome groups to discuss safe routes for child refugees.
Help us find a way to give everyone fleeing persecution safe passage. Your donation will be made to Citizens UK and ring-fenced for the Safe Passage programme.Go to Donate Page
