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 [16-22 June 2014] focussed on children and young refugees, celebrating the important part they play in our shared futures, the wonderful contributions they are making to our society and  recognising the resilience and determination they show when rebuilding their lives in a strange, new country.

The Refugee Week website www.refugeeweek.org.uk has lots of information and resources.
