This year is the first year that Hallam University will have its very own STAR group. If you want to help support Refugees in Sheffield this is your opportunity to get involved. As a team you will get together and plan events and actions around the following themes:

  • Building a connection between the refugee community of Sheffield and the Hallam University.

  • Raising awareness of the situation of refugees in the UK and abroad.

  • Campaigning and fundraising to improve the lives of asylum seekers and refugees in our local City of Sanctuary, Sheffield, and nationally.


When:  This is a flexible volunteering role, the meeting times and days will be decided democratically by the team.
