Refugee Week

Refugee Week logoRefugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourage a better understanding between communities.

This year, Refugee Week will focus on children and young refugees, to celebrate the important part they play in our shared futures, the wonderful contributions they are making to our society, and to recognise the resilience and determination they show when rebuilding their lives in a strange, new country. Refugee Week takes place 16-22 June 2014.

The Refugee Week website has lots of information and resources you can use in your Refugee Week activities.
