STAR’s Annual National Student Conference 2017

STAR has been supporting and welcoming refugees in the UK for the past 25 years to 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.

Together we’re stronger!
