STUDENT ACTION FOR REFUGEES (STAR)
Student Action for Refugees, or STAR, is the national network of students roups working to improve the lives of refugees in the United Kingdom by:
- Promoting positive images of refugees
- Volunteering for local refugee projects
- Campaigning for refugees
Student Action for Refugees is a national student society which aims to improve the lives of asylum seekers and refugees in the UK. It does this through campaigning, educating volunteering.
The STAR network now consists of over 30 university groups (usually as a society in the Students' Union) as well as Friends of STAR for individuals and organisations to support STAR's work.
The groups are supported by the national office which provides various resources, training and organisation.
Each year STAR organises a national Conference in the Autumn Term, an Annual Action Day in Spring and a Summer training weekend. These events are for all young people interested in finding out more about refugee issues.
