When is Refugee Week?

Refugee Week takes place each year in June.

This will be from 17 to 23 June 2024, and the theme will be Our Home. From the places we gather to share meals to our collective home, planet earth: everyone is invited to celebrate what our Our Home means to them.

A teaching focus on Refugee Week can help children gain understanding of issues and vocabulary they may encounter in the news, as well as supporting the celebration of diversity and inclusion in your school.

“To me, a home is where you feel loved, safe, and cherished.”

Malala Yousafzai

What is Refugee Week?

Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Refugee Week 2023 invited people to celebrate what compassion looks like in action and show how arts and culture can help widen our circles of compassion.
