Emma for Ukraine

Emma Thompson is a patron of the Refugee Council.

She feels frustrated with the slowness of the Government’s Ukrainian visa scheme.

More than 25,000 completed applications are submitted, but only 1,000 visas are approved.

It’s horrific to see what’s happening in Ukraine. Like everyone else, I’ve been watching and there are just no words.’

‘I’d like to see the Government do much more for refugees,’ Emma said. ‘It wouldn’t be difficult. The visa process for refugees from Ukraine is slow and complicated. These are people in an emergency.’
