For Refugee Week we are celebrating the achievements and successes of refugees and asylum seekers we work with, and the compassion shown by the people of Suffolk in welcoming those arriving here in search of safety.

Stories – you can read about the experiences of three refugees who have found new homes in Suffolk here, and hear stories recorded for Suffolk Day from an Afghan family here and a Ukrainian refugee here

Achievements – throughout the week, we are highlighting some of the great refugee businesses in Suffolk on our Facebook page here.

Events – we will be holding a special meal prepared by refugee cooks we work with (sign up to be a member of SRS here to receive invitations to future food events!); we will be at Northgate High School’s Great Get Together Community Fair on Friday 23 June, and we will have a stall at the Saints Summer Market in Ipswich on Sunday 25 June selling some of the beautiful items made by our sewing group.
