About Refuge

Refuge was started as a fundraising platform working in solidarity with grassroots and non-profit organisations. This year we launched Refuge Worldwide, a new radio station to amplify the music and issues that we care about, broadcasting weekly Tuesday to Fridays.

Since 2015, among others, we have worked with a young women’s centre, refugee housing support associations, a music school for marginalised persons, social equity groups, homelessness agencies, and a shelter for women and young persons fleeing domestic violence.

The Team

The station team will produce a diverse range of radio shows, media and live events. Refuge Worldwide combines international and local artists, as well as platforming young and marginalised communities.

It is more important than ever to make sure we build thriving, independent and growing cooperative communities. The new Refuge Worldwide website will not only be a community platform but it will help to connect people with grassroots organisations and improve our fundraising efforts.

Refuge Worldwide

Refuge Worldwide commits to striving for a gender balanced station, representative of minorities. The station is focused on community-building and creating space / visibility for underrepresented artists. 

  • We operate a zero-tolerance policy toward racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism and xenophobia

  • Intend to work for the benefit of the local area

  • Host community focused initiatives

  • Create and allow discourse to flourish

  • Deliver a diverse and high quality music programme

We are really excited to present a broad range of shows ranging from 100% music-focused programmes, to some that incorporate interviews and debate, to programmes completely dedicated to discussion.

The music policy is diverse, from hip-hop to house, new wave to northern soul, reggae to R&B, ambient to IDM. All of our hosts have freedom to do what they like with their shows and programme structure.
