Refugee Week 2020

Posted: 15/06/2020

We're proudly supporting World Refugee Week 2020. A UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees.

The organisers of Refugee Week are inviting you to do one (or more) of the eight Simple Acts. They can all be done at home and are inspired by this year’s theme ‘Imagine’. Simple Acts are everyday actions we can all do to stand with refugees and make new connections in communities.

It can help boost our own feelings of wellbeing to appreciate and value the diversity and similarities of people from different backgrounds, and help everyone feel a sense of belonging.

There are also other ways you can get involved in Refugee Week. You can organise an event, volunteer, attend an event or add your voice on social media. Remember to use the hashtag #RefugeeWeek2020.

Have a look at the Refugee Week events calendar, where you can find out what’s on in your city, town or region.
