Letter: Stop stress and disadvantage 4

November 23, 2001

The Home Office has just awarded us a grant to assist refugees, particularly with respect to post-school education ("Red tape is throttling talent", THES , November 16).

The government is in "listening mode" on the points in your article. We urge THES readers to campaign with us to ensure that refugees get a fair deal and to consider making a donation to fund our work.

John Akker
Executive secretary
Council for Assisting Refugee Academics
