Save The Date - Asylum Early Action Summit
Thursday 20 May, 9:30am - 1:30pm
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 which prevent/de-escalate crisis, and funder approaches which enable early action development.
Guidance: Containing Trauma and Holding Boundaries
Bristol Refugee Rights have produced a simple and practical guide in consultation with a psychologist at Trauma Foundation Southwest. The guide is to help staff maintain good boundaries and self-care whilst supporting vulnerable people.
Right to Remain Blog: (Re)search for Better Translation
We’ve just finished our Explore programme which supported 12 organisations on digital journeys, looking at ways to improve their websites or adapt their services. Right to Remain have looked at translation, and Lisa Matthews has shared some of her discoveries.
To chat with Lisa and the community about translations, join our community Slack and look for the channel #translations.
Bread & Roses Programme, June 2021
Referrals open until Friday 9 April, midday
Bread and Roses are looking for asylum seeking and refugee women who are interested in learning floristry, meeting new people, practising their English and learning about local support services. Workshops are held in London, and spaces will be offered on a first come first serve basis.
Share Your Stories of Resilience
The ‘Stories of Resilience’ project, launched through Respond and Adapt Programme (RAP), aims to create a collaborative pool of stories about inspiring and impactful work. If you have a story idea, please share it with us by Thursday 15 April.
Digital Safeguarding Training
Thursday 1 April, 10am - 12pm
In partnership with AVA, Refugee Action is offering a free webinar session on the essentials of digital safeguarding. This session will cover key principles, online platforms, managing groups online, dealing with disclosures, and data privacy/confidentiality.
#CloseTheBarracks - Day of Action
On 19 March campaigners came together seeking to reform asylum accommodation and close the barracks during the Day of Action, organised by numerous organisations in the sector. People shared their experiences of asylum accommodation with over 600 people and parliamentarians.
Legal Mapping Survey
Jo Wilding is researching access to immigration and asylum legal advice across the UK, on behalf of Refugee Action. The research will inform Refugee Action’s strategy, be published as a resource, and hopefully develop a software tool for organisations.
