About Student Action For Refugees
STAR is a national charity of 13,000 students welcoming refugees to the UK. Together we volunteer at local refugee projects, campaign to improve the lives of refugees, educate people about refugees and asylum and fundraise to welcome refugees. Whatever your interests are, together we can come up with ideas to turn them into events and projects that can help refugees and make their stories heard. Whether you want to create your own event, help organise others, be part of them or want to learn more about what refugees go through, we are always open to more members and more ideas. Please feel free to contact any of our exec members on Facebook or email us for any questions/ideas/comments
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
