Last year this event was really well attended by staff, volunteers and clients and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Please come for 6.45pm with a dish to share. The film will start at 7pm and finish around 9pm.

The event is free and you are invited to make a small donation at the end. Children are welcome. You don't need a ticket just turn up.

Last Friday we held our annual meeting, where we celebrated the successes achieved in the last financial year, announced our future plans and shared lunch together as a community of refugees, asylumseekers, volunteers, staff, trustees and supporters. We were especially proud to welcome @RBKMayor councillor Thay Thayalan and his wife to the event.

These wonderful photos of the event are courtesy of our volunteer photographer Terry Crisp.

RAK's legal status has changed from a registered charity to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). 

From the point of view of our clients, of our staff and volunteers and of our relationships with other organisations, we want to have no detectable difference between the new and old legal status, and the charity name will be the same. We have the same trustees, and the same staff, to offer the same services and activities to our clients and to have the same agreements and contracts with the organisations with which we work and with our suppliers. The only difference is that the charity registration number will change. Our new Charitable Incorporated Organisation no. is 1176768. The transfer of legal status took place on 1 September  2018.
