Join the Simple Acts Movement

We are delighted to reveal our seven new (or revitalised!) Simple Acts for Refugee Week 2019!

Inspired by the Refugee Week 2019 theme 'You, me and those who came before', these seven Simple Acts are simple things everyone can do to stand with refugees and make new connections in their communities.

Whether you choose to Find out who you really are, Write a poem or Share a dish, we hope you'll feel inspired to do and share a Simple Act during Refugee Week 2019, 17-23 June.

And if you're thinking of organising a Refugee Week event or activity, we'd love you to build a Simple Act (or two) into your plans.

Join the Simple Acts movement and stand with refugees this Refugee Week.
