Refugee Week 2024 In St Helens

13 March 2024

 

Refugee Week 2024 will take place on 17th-23rd June 2024. For more information about Refugee Week, please visit https://refugeeweek.org.uk/.

The theme for 2024 is "Our Home". As in previous years, the St Helens Refugee Resettlement Service and its partners within and outside the council will be looking to celebrate the week with a range of events and activities.

 Please find attached some ‘save the date/week’ leaflets. In 2024, they are looking to support as many groups and organisations as possible, so all can contribute to Refugee Week. Please note the following developments:

  • They are launching a separate scheme to award small Refugee Week 2024 Grants to enable groups and organisations to organise events and activities this year. Please find attached:
    • A promotional leaflet about the grants
    • The Application Guidance
    • The Application Form
       
  • If you are in a public service or in a group that does not qualify for Refugee Week 2024 Grants, please contact them to discuss if there are other ways through which they can support your ideas and proposals for Refugee Week.
     
  • Following the success of last year’s Refugee Week community event, they are going to organise a new Communities Together event on Saturday 22nd June 2024. Please find attached the leaflet for this event and share with your networks, friends, etc. The event will include a marketplace to showcase community groups, organisations, and services. If you would like to have stall on the day to promote your organisation, service, community group, etc., please let them know as soon as possible, so they can include you in their planning. They are also looking for local performers, artists, and other talent for the day. Please let them know as soon as possible if you know anyone who could make a contribution to the event on the 22nd June.

 

They have a planning/reference group for Refugee Week 2024 in St Helens. Everyone is welcome to call in to receive further updates and help to shape events and activities for Refugee Week 2024.
