Be part of Refugee Week 2022

Refugee Week 2022 is coming, and you can take part by holding your own event or activity, big or small, 20-26 June.

The Refugee Week 2022 Event Organiser Pack, has all the info, tips and resources you need to get started.

Refugee Week is an annual festival celebrating the contributions of refugees, and the theme for 2022 is ‘Healing’. Whether that’s healing from sickness or trauma, healing our shared planet, or healing divisions in society – through creativity and conversations, Refugee Week 2022 will be a celebration of community, mutual care, and the human ability to start again.

Refugee Week enables people from different backgrounds to connect beyond labels, as well as encouraging understanding of why people are displaced, and the challenges they face when seeking safety.

Every year, hundreds of people and organisations across the UK and the world hold all kinds of activities that bring people together and encourage understanding of refugee experiences – from craft workshops to community walks, and everything in between!

Whether you take part in your neighbourhood, with a group or organisation or simply with friends, you’ll be part of a growing global movement proudly celebrating sanctuary and the possibility of new beginnings. Join us!
