Kids at a refugee family event in Teesside, 2010

STAR helps thousands of refugees rebuild their lives in the UK by providing English classes, kids clubs, drop ins and much more.

STAR teaches the leaders of tomorrow to support and respect refugees by educating the students of today.

Our costs are very low (we have just 3 full and 3 part-time paid staff to run the network of 26,000 volunteers!) and as a charity we rely totally on the generosity of our supporters.

Please give generously so that STAR can keep on making the world a better place for refugees. You can set up a monthly donation or give us a one off donation through Just Giving or if you would like to send us a cheque see details below.
