This week is Refugee Week, the UK’s largest festival celebrating the contribution of refugees and promoting understanding of why people seek sanctuary.
The theme of this year’s festival is “You, me and those who came before” and we are invited to find out more about the lives of refugees – and those who welcomed them – through the generations.
There are lots of events happening throughout the week and you can find out more here.
Do you have ancestors who were refugees or welcomed refugees? Do you know their stories? Why not find out more?
