For adults or older young people:

  • You can watch Newsnight's A terrible journey to Europe, following three teenage migrants as they travel to Italy seeking safety.
  • Available on the BBC iPlayer is Sitting in limbo, a drama about the recent Windrush scandal.
  • Christian Aid's page on displaced people has stories from individuals as well as a displacement campaign briefing and information sheets on their call for a fair deal.

For children, families and all age:

Don't forget, a great place to start is with the book The boy at the back of the class, and there's a host of supporting resources for that book here.
