STARbrum is the University of Birmingham branch of STAR – Student Action for Refugees.
We run several volunteering projects through the Refugee Centre in Birmingham, including Playscheme, Orientation, and Children’s Club. We also hope to launch a Teenager’s Club in the future. STAR fundraises to help run these projects through activities like cake sales, bucket-shakes, and music nights.
We also campaign to improve the systems of seeking asylum and being granted refugee status, as well as improving the conditions of asylum seekers and refugees. We seek to increase people’s awareness of issues surrounding refugees and promote accurate information regarding them.
