Refugees into Schools aims to increase children’s understanding of why people are forced to become refugees and of the impact of war and persecution. It does this by supporting refugee volunteers to share their experience of conflict and seeking asylum here in the UK. Through this activity the project supports schools in their statutory duty to promote community cohesion. The project focuses on London which is a diverse, multi-ethnic city including a significant refugee population of both adults and children. Public perception of refugees is, however, often distorted by misleading or inaccurate reporting of what it is to be a refugee.
