Forced To Flee is a global non-profit organisation, advocating for refugees, education & youth around the world, founded in 2018.
Led and run by youth, we strive to advocate, educate and inspire people across the world to create a better tomorrow, together. We work with governments, international organisations, and civil society to achieve our vision.
Our volunteers individually also carry out Forced To Flee's mission in their individual duties and responsibilities, enabling Forced To Flee to be a collaborate and inclusive for young people to truly create a better tomorrow. Forced To Flee also work with UN Agencies, partners, and policymakers to achieve its vision.
Through our previous In Conversation With series, we have interviewed world leaders, advocates, volunteers, authors and charity leaders to educate people about the ongoing issues refugees face in our society. Our information & resources section contains up-to-date facts and research on ongoing refugee situations.
We have also raised over £1000+ for refugee charities, and been invited to speak at global conferences, universities and schools around the world. Through our partners and outreach, we have helped refugees & forcibly displaced people to reach safety. We also give youth testimony and engage in policy processes to ensure the voices of youth & refugees are heard in decision making. Our advocacy also focuses on our WPS-HA Compact Commitments, and a spotlight is included in the 2022 Accountability Report
Through our projects we have enabled youth from across the global to engage on social issues and with decision-makers to have their voice meaningfully heard. In recognition of our work, we advise and help the work of UN agencies, and are an official signatory to the United Nations Women, Peace, Security and Humanitarian Action Compact (WPS-HA). Forced To Flee's founder was named Best Human Rights & Refugee Organisation MD for 2023.
