Refugee Crisis: Behind the Headlines
A big thank you to everyone who attended our event at the Copeland Gallery
on Saturday 7th May. We're working hard to put together a follow
on event, so watch this space! After losing over £150,000 in recent cuts, we've set up a Just Giving page. We have a mountain to climb, but with you're help, Southwark Charities will be able to continue to offer the much needed support.
It was an amazing afternoon of speakers, documentaries and photo presentations as well as interactive sessions for those who'd wanted to find out a little more about the reality of life as a refugee.
We raised over £1500 on the day, which after expenses will be divided between:
Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers
Southwark Refugee & Migrant Project
Southwark Refugee Communities Forum
In association with:
Southwark Law Centre,
Forum for Equalities and Human Rights in Southwark,
Southwark Citizens Advice Bureau Service,
Southwark Hate Crime Network

We're having a follow-up event Wednesday 15th 6.30pm - 8pm for all of you who expressed an interest in volunteering with the local Southwark Groups - they really need your help! You can find out more by clicking here
