Young boy reading The Welcome to the UK book

Hong Kong to UK

This publication was a joint venture between the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities, Welcome Churches and

This dual language book was aimed at primary school children moving to the UK from Hong Kong to help them adjust to a new culture and feel welcomed into a new country.

We followed this with a similar project for refugees from Ukraine as the war displaced so many children. We will add that project to the website in due course.

Darren did a brilliant job illustrating The Welcome Book for primary school children arriving from Hong Kong. We wanted something that children will want to keep to remember that they were made to feel wanted and welcomed to the UK. Darren hit exactly the right tone and has produced a masterpiece.
