Refugee Week 2023 is coming!

Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. This year’s theme is Compassion.

We encourage all City of Sanctuary groups and awarded organisations to take part in this important week.

Our Schools of Sanctuary programme is encouraging schools to put their compassion into action – click here for a range of activities.

Norfolk Schools of Sanctuary have also created this Teacher Guide, which will give you a handy overview of the extensive resources they’ve prepared for schools across the UK – including live webcasts, free teacher training sessions, detailed lesson plans and resources specifically designed to share local histories of refugee migration.
