We are pleased to share two pieces of new guidance on diversifying your trustee board and running service user groups co-created by the EBE Action Group. We’ve also written a blog about what we’ve learnt about ‘doing’ co-production. 
Asylum Early Action Summit

The Asylum Early Action partnership invites you to explore the impact and importance of early action for the asylum sector. Workshops will focus on collaborations, designing services, and funder approaches.

Right to Remain have launched their new look Toolkit website. The Toolkit is a step-by-step guide to the UK asylum and immigration system.

Open Letter: We Need Your Signature
