Many thanks to everyone who helped out with June’s Refugee Week events!


Southwark Refugee Response is a volunteer community supporting local organisations in their work to help refugees and asylum seekers in the borough.

We aim to:

  • Increase local support for refugees and asylum seekers by organising awareness-raising events
  • Convert that support into practical help for local organisations – matching their needs with volunteers and donations
  • Help local residents feel that they can make a tangible, local difference in the face of an international crisis

You can find out more about the organisations we work for and donate to support them here. You can also sign up to our newsletter to keep up with what’s going on. Below are all the latest events we are involved in – if you’d like to lend a hand or have your own ideas for running an event, we’d love to hear from you at

Upcoming events

Southwark Refugee Response Campaign Meeting

Weds 15th August
At Southwark Refugee Communities Forum office, St Giles Centre, 81 Camberwell Church St, SE5 8RB

Our regular campaign meetings give Southwark residents the chance to hear from the charities and support organisations whose vital work helps refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in the borough every day. It’s where we coordinate our work with the local organisations and find out what they’re up to, what support they need, and how we can lend a hand.

Refugee Week 16-24th June

There will be a range of events throughout the week in Southwark starting midday on Saturday 16th, with panel discussions, films, workshops, food and more at All Saints Church, Blenheim Grove, Peckham. More details on our Refugee Week calendar.
