Refugee Week steering group

Sanctuary on Sea is hoping to set up a group to coordinate events in Brighton & Hove during Refugee Week, 18th to 26th June.

The first meeting of the group will be held on Thursday 2nd June from 5.30 pm – 7.30 pm at Community Base.

Anyone who is planning an event during Refugee Week, or interested in getting involved, is welcome to come to the meeting. The aim of the meeting is to discuss:

  • What events are planned and how we can jointly publicise them
  • What help is needed by organisations – funding, materials and how we can source these or share resources
  • Whether there is a role for volunteers and how these can be recruited
  • Whether we want to have any joint media or communications messages as the organisations working on Refugee Week in Brighton & Hove

If you are interested in attending the meeting, or want to find out more about Refugee Week, please contact Monika on 077 303 391 45 or [email protected]

Monika is the Refugee Week coordinator for Sanctuary on Sea.
