This year, VIP Reading and O’s Refugee Aid Team are collaborating to bring Refugee Week to life. We believe that the hashtag ‘Spread Hope’ recognises the difficulties faced by refuges in the world today. Inspiring children to engage with this theme is key.

Our aim is to inspire new discussions, new questions, new insight into the plight of refugees from all walks of life, through a love of reading.

Our key activities for the week:

  •  6 award-winning authors will be involved in bringing this week to life, through video content and social media engagement.
  • Free educational resources, created by a team of educators, will be provided for all schools to use, which will include assembly, lesson ideas and home activities.
  • We will be selling special refugee-themed VIP Reading book boxes across the country, with profits going to O’s Refugee Aid Team.
  • Merchandise will be available for sale.
