What you can expect from our charity special edition

Across the site we’re adding a ‘Donate’ banner to every page that takes you directly to the JustGiving page we’ve set up to support REUK (just like the one at the top of this page)

The special edition articles we have lined up will look a little different too, with specially designed webpages and images. We’ll also have a banner identifying them as part of our special series.

We’ve got some fabulous content as part of our special edition including:

  • Paul Dix, writing about the importance of circles, rather than red lines, with children and young people
  • Rob Webster, reflecting on the central role of TAs in a post-pandemic world
  • Rachel Tomlinson, Headteacher, on the vital importance of relationship
  • Sue Roffey, offering a rallying call to join the dots between equity and empathy
  • Charity Yoga session led by the incredible Sorcha from SorChakra yoga. Sorcha previously led a charity yoga session for us to raise money for UNICEF’s work in Ukraine.

Refugee Education UK: education for a hopeful future

REUK are working towards a world where all refugee and asylum-seeking children and young people can access and thrive in education

Young refugees we work with at REUK often tell us that education is their best tool for rebuilding a more hopeful future – and yet we see how the impact of trauma can both keep young people out of school, and prevent them from thriving once there.

We’re delighted to be partnering with edpsy to help shed light on the many links between trauma and learning – and are so grateful for this support from the edpsy community as we continue our work to equip young refugees in their educational journeys.

The work of REUK has a real impact for children, young people and educational professionals. Money we raise will continue to support their fantastic work:

REUK 50:50 Campaign

Refugee Education UK is also currently running their 50:50 campaign. The aim is to get 50 new, regular, monthly donors in 50 days.

Their YouTube campaign video talks more about this campaign and you can hear from young people who have benefited from REUK’s work.
