 "Displaced Child” by Natasha Houseago

"Displaced Child” by Natasha Houseago

Friday 8 October to Sunday 31 October 2021

In the Lady Chapel at Gloucester Cathedral during normal opening hours.

“Displaced Child” is a sculpture by Natasha Houseago which was commissioned by The Everyman Theatre in 2021 to raise awareness of “The Walk” by Good Chance Theatre and the work of Gloucestershire Action for Refugees & Asylum Seekers (GARAS) and Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees (CWR).

Worldwide, nearly 33 million children have been forcibly displaced and 50 per cent of the world’s refugees are children (2019 statistics from:

https://data.unicef.org/topic/child-migration-and-displacement/displacement/)

These children are largely without a voice and so this sculpture seeks to help us to remember them and ‘she’ will hopefully encourage us to support organisations like Good Chance Theatre, GARAS and CWR that advocate and support displaced children.

“Millions of children are on the move. Some are driven from their homes by conflict, poverty or climate change; others leave in the hope of finding a better life. Far too many encounter danger, detention, deprivation and discrimination on their journeys, at destination or upon return.

It doesn’t have to be this way. The suffering and exclusion of migrant and displaced children is not only unacceptable, but also preventable. A child is a child, no matter why she leaves home, where she comes from, where she is, or how she got there. Every child deserves protection, care and all the support and services she needs to thrive.” https://www.unicef.org/migrant-refugee-internally-displaced-children

The suffering and exclusion of migrant and displaced children is not only unacceptable, but also preventable. A child is a child, no matter why she leaves home, where she comes from, where she is, or how she got there. Every child deserves protection, care and all the support and services she needs to thrive.” https://www.unicef.org/migrant-refugee-internally-displaced-children

Friday 29th October 2021 "Displaced Child” by Natasha Houseago

"Displaced Child” by Natasha Houseago

Friday 8 October to Sunday 31 October 2021

In the Lady Chapel at Gloucester Cathedral during normal opening hours.

“Displaced Child” is a sculpture by Natasha Houseago which was commissioned by The Everyman Theatre in 2021 to raise awareness of “The Walk” by Good Chance Theatre and the work of Gloucestershire Action for Refugees & Asylum Seekers (GARAS) and Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees (CWR).

Worldwide, nearly 33 million children have been forcibly displaced and 50 per cent of the world’s refugees are children (2019 statistics from:

https://data.unicef.org/topic/child-migration-and-displacement/displacement/)

These children are largely without a voice and so this sculpture seeks to help us to remember them and ‘she’ will hopefully encourage us to support organisations like Good Chance Theatre, GARAS and CWR that advocate and support displaced children.

“Millions of children are on the move. Some are driven from their homes by conflict, poverty or climate change; others leave in the hope of finding a better life. Far too many encounter danger, detention, deprivation and discrimination on their journeys, at destination or upon return.

It doesn’t have to be this way. The suffering and exclusion of migrant and displaced children is not only unacceptable, but also preventable. A child is a child, no matter why she leaves home, where she comes from, where she is, or how she got there. Every child deserves protection, care and all the support and services she needs to thrive.” https://www.unicef.org/migrant-refugee-internally-displaced-children

07:30Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club

Thursday and Sunday mornings 7.30am

Supporting the homeless and vulnerable is core to our values, our vision and mission and is realised through our Social Responsibility work. The challenges of Covid-19 and resulting restrictions have required different ways of working to help us build on our existing successes, but not without times of frustration and sadness that we can’t do more.

We are delighted that our Breakfast Club provision continues to run every Thursday and Sunday morning.  The dedicated volunteer team serve takeaway bacon rolls and hot drinks, utilising our outdoor spaces to ensure guests can observe social distancing when queuing, whilst still receiving a warm Cathedral welcome.

  • Breakfast Club runs on Thursday and Sunday at 7.30am-8.30am
  • Guests are asked to convene at the West end steps of the Cathedral where a queuing system is set up. 
  • We ask guests to wear face masks whenever possible and observe social distancing.

Our partners Gloucester City Mission also provides a hot meal and outreach services for those in need.  Visit their website www.gloscitymission.org.uk for more information.
