Situation

There is still much prejudice towards and misinformation about refugees and asylum seekers in the mainstream media, as well as a lack of opportunities for such groups to take part and speak for themselves.

Solution

Refugee Week Radio provides a platform for individuals and groups to participate in the media, whilst highlighting and promoting positive stories to a wider audience. We gather reports and interviews with refugees including artists, writers and representatives of community groups. These are published via the website (refugeeweekradio-dot-net) live and on-demand. We also provide training and support for those who want to take part in the production process.
