Refugee Mini Resource

We've launched #DreamBigAtHome!

Our new lockdown website has hundreds of activities and games to do at home, weekly challenges to try and a regular programme of live workshops and events online, as well as information on how our groups can operate during the COVID-19 outbreak.


Refugee and migrant issues are important to talk about with young people. We want to raise awareness of what is going on across the world where people are forced to leave their homes due to war, climate change and famine. Our wonderful ESC (European Solidarity Corpse) volunteer has created this excellent mini resource that helps start conversations with your groups about refugees. The resource pack aims to raise awareness, give more accurate information and bust some myths that we often see in the UK press about refugees.

You will receive your score and some information about each question at the end of the quiz.
