What we do


The first JRAN Forum convened in August 2020 of the Covid-19 pandemic and brought together our network of grassroots organisations, charities, and distinguished keynote speakers and panellists to discuss the most pressing issues facing today's refugee aid work.  


Topics discussed included:

  1. Mental Health

  2. Employment

  3. Advocacy & Campaigning

  4. Delivery on the ground

Further forums have addressed mentoring and coaching in the sector (May 2021) and the Afghan Refugee Crisis and responses to it (Dec 21).   

Our most recent forum brought together key organisations in the sector to look at the response to the Ukraine Crisis. The findings of the forum can be downloaded here
