About Action For Refugees
We are not-for-profit charitable organisations working with local individuals, groups and schools to help refugees. We deliver a range of community fundraising events, and promote awareness, befriending, support and solidarity for refugees and asylum seekers living in Birmingham and the Black Country and those seeking safe passage across Europe.
We have compiled a collection of handy resources for both primary and secondary schools keen to explore refugee issues with their students. If you are a school interested in working with us or accessing these resources please contact us.
With mac Birmingham and Art Works Hall Green, we co-commissioned the Birmingham Artivists Smethwick Craftivistas to create We Are Not Of This Place, which engaged people across the city through creative sessions, creating a visual and sound installation presented at the mac.
