Refugee Week in Croydon – 15 to 21 June 2020 – Get involved!

Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees. It was founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June.

Croydon Refugee Week is being led by the Croydon Refugee and New Communities Forum, an independent, local and collaborative initiative formed in 2019 aimed at promoting migrant justice, voices and integration in Croydon.
