LSESU Welcome Week Freshers Fair 2023

Student Action for Refugees

LSESU Student Action for Refugees (STAR) seeks to empower and improve the lives of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and abroad with our fundraising, campaigning and volunteering efforts.

LSESU STAR is part of a national network of students seeking to improve the lives of refugee and asylum seekers in the UK by promoting positive images of refugees and getting their voices heard!

From hosting speaker events and coffee mornings to large scale volunteering projects and campaigns, there’s always something (no matter how big or small) that you can do to help us in our aims to make a difference in our community and country.

LSESU STAR is a passionate, dedicated community and we look forward to welcoming new members and seeing what we can achieve this coming year!



We have kept our membership at the super cheap price of just £3! This ensures as many people can join without facing the barrier of the cost of membership! This membership allows you access to all our society events, and regular updates throughout our society through our WhatsApp chat!


Donation Drive:

We are currently in the process of organising a donation drive for Care4Calais, and are actively seeking donations. You can donate at the LSESU RAG Charity Shop! Please see our instagram for the needs list! Refugees and Displaced People in Calais, Dunkirk, and the wider Northern France area are currently living in some of the worst conditions ever seen, facing the freezing winter and constant evictions. Care4Calais provide material aid, and are in desperate need of more items to distribute. With your help, you can directly help Refugees and Displaced people, making a positive impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people across society!


Coffee Morning:

On Friday 9th February, we held a successful coffee morning, where like-minded people came together to discuss issues of migration, the Refugee Crisis and forced displacement. We plan to hold future Coffee Morning's like this soon!

WhatsApp Chat:
