How to help refugees: London events and fundraisers
The refugee crisis, which dominated the news in 2015-16, has received significantly less coverage since the Calais Jungle was dismantled in the Autumn of 2016. While the situation is not currently hitting the headlines, and the number of arrivals in Europe has dropped due to government crackdowns, it’s far from resolved. Over one million people sought asylum in Europe in 2018 alone.
Refugee Week (17 – 23 June 2019) is a nationwide programme of
events that celebrates the contribution of refugees to the UK. If you're keen to find ways to get involved, here's what's going on in London in aid of the refugee crisis.
