Refugee Week 2024: 17-23 June

Our Home – Illustration by Manjit Thapp for Refugee Week 2024

The children we support are separated from their parents because of war, persecution or poverty. Forced to flee their homes, they travel for weeks or months on end to reach safety, often going hungry and without a warm, safe place to sleep. Separated children are vulnerable and often traumatised by their experiences but they show incredible bravery and the determination to rebuild their lives.


The Big Coffee & Cake Morning

This year we are asking you, our supporters, to help separated children by hosting a coffee and cake morning in your own home, workplace or community centre during Refugee Week. You could even organise a virtual event online.

We have created a set of printouts and ideas to help you with planning your own Big Coffee and Cake Morning. From invitations and posters to bunting and a downloadable recipe book to share your favourites, it’s an opportunity to get everyone involved whilst raising awareness of the needs of separated children in the UK.

Simply choose a date during June that suits you and get started!
