All About Frome – December 14th 2021




Our main feature is about refugees and their resettlement experience in the UK. Frome has seen several families from Syria pass through in the last few years and there are many more families out there from other countries looking for help to integrate into British society. We look at the plight of the refugee and the protocols for settling them into a world which is culturally very different from the one they fled.

In the studio, Dinah Bardgett, who worked on a scheme resettling vulnerable people in Somerset and Jason Hart from Bath University, who has spent 25 years on research with refugees in the Middle East and South Asia, and also helped support the Frome refugees.
