The Refugee Allies project has two strands:
Act. Speak. Inspire: A programme of volunteering that supports grassroots organisations in formal or informal camps in Europe, in order to share the stories of the experiences back in the UK (Actions@Home). These Actions@Home build understanding, humanise displaced people and open up spaces for curiosity and concerns in conversations.
Social gatherings: Held at St Ethelburga’s, bringing locals and newcomers together for events that include connection through conversations, workshops, food, art and music. The emphasis is on creating a culture of mutuality, to break down barriers and see ourselves in each other.
