World Refugee Day is held annually throughout the world on the 20th of June. On this day or week we acknowledge and reflect on the courage of millions of people who are forced to flee their home lands. We also celebrate the contribution former refugees make to our community in terms of our local economy and cultural diversity.

Join us as we celebrate World Refugee Week.
