Refugee Action York (RAY)
Founded in 2002 RAY raises awareness of the contribution refugees and asylum seekers make to our society and to challenge the myths and misconceptions about refugees and asylum seekers. RAY supports refugees, asylum seekers and migrants chiefly through the provision of a Sunday drop-in offering support, sign posting and information as well as English conversation for adults and mother tongue classes for children from Turkish speaking families. RAY also provides outreach with and for the Kurdish community in York; education sessions in local schools as part the PHSE curriculum, working primarily with year 9 & 10 students. They also organise the annual Refugee Week in York as part of the national and international awareness raising campaign on the plight of refugees and asylum seekers.
