Regional Groups (Continental Friends)

The AJR operates a network of regional groups throughout the country that offer our members with similar backgrounds, from all countries across Europe , a unique opportunity to socialise and share their experiences. Since its inception, the outreach programme has enabled the AJR to identify and assist help many new members throughout.

In addition to organising meetings, outings and coffee mornings as well as garden and tea parties, our outreach co-ordinators arrange national and regional get-togethers, which comprise a full day’s programme, including lunch and guest speakers and group discussion. It is at such gatherings that many old friends have been re-united after more than 60 years.

We also arrange small gatherings and meetings of former refugees in members’ homes.
