Walk Together

The Great Walk Together is Back!

Last Refugee Week, you came together to walk through parks, up mountains and through local history spots.

We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the Jo Cox Foundation again this year to invite you to take part in The Great Walk Together 2022, in celebration of Refugee Week and the Great Get Together. 

Wherever you walk and whoever you walk with, you’ll be joining people up and down the country, coming together to create new connections and reflect on the journeys that refugees face. You can walk together whenever you wish – but we are particularly encouraging people to run their Great Walk Together on Great Get Together weekend, between 24 and 26 June. Whenever you walk please register your walk with The Great Get Together!

The Great Walk Together toolkit has everything you need to plan your walk. Visit the Great Get Together website to download the pack and register your walk.

Share your plans and pics on social media using #WalkTogether and #MoreinCommon.

If your social media post includes images or names of other people, make sure you get permission first, including from parents/ guardians of anyone under 18.

Walk Together is one of eight Simple Acts you can do for Refugee Week 2022. To view them all, visit the Simple Acts page.
