Refugee Week 2021

Launched in 1988, Refugee Week — held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June — is a nationwide programme of events and activities that recognise the contribution of refugees to British society and the continuing importance of offering sanctuary to those in need. Taking inspiration from Martin Luther King’s famous I Have a Dream speech, this year’s theme is ‘We Cannot Walk Alone,’ highlighting the importance of coming together in active and engaged anti-racism, learning about the experiences of others and building a sense of community and support.

To mark Refugee Week, we’ve gathered together a range of reading that raises awareness of the experience of refugees, including thought-provoking true stories, original fiction and inspirational books for children.
