Empower students to defend the rights of refugees with the following education resources.

Seeking Safety

This activity pack is designed to approach the issue of asylum in a way that is accessible, and appropriate to primary school children. The pack focuses on asylum, approaching the issue from global and UK perspectives and encourages students to draw parallels with their own lives.

Football Welcomes

This resource, for 7-14 year olds, has been designed to support teachers to encourage discussion about refugee rights and to celebrate the contribution that people of refugee backgrounds have made to the UK, especially to football.

Respect my rights, Respect my dignity. Module 4: Refugees’ and migrants’ rights are human rights

This resource is a tool for anyone, anywhere, who would like to learn more about refugees’ and migrants’ rights and get involved in their community or country to advocate for these rights. In particular teachers, young people, activists, human rights defenders and people on the move can use this module to educate and empower their communities to welcome refugees and migrants. Welcoming refugees and migrants includes ensuring that their human rights are respected and protected. While this resource covers the basics of refugees’ and migrants’ rights, additional resources are included at the end of each section, for those who want to learn more.
