1. Share a story

The experiences of refugees can feel very far away. But they are all around us, if we know where to look. 

It is a sad fact that war and persecution are nothing new. People have had to leave their homes in search of safety for generations, bringing new perspectives, experiences and talents to the societies they join.  

Britain is no exception. The stories of refugees are right here: in the music we listen to, the food we eat, the books our children read. And when we listen to these stories, it becomes harder to ignore the connections between us – the fact that the contributions and experiences of refugees are part of who we all are. 

This Simple Act invites you ‘meet’ one person who has sought safety in the UK through the generations. To listen to their story and imagine life through their eyes.
