GM VCSE Sanctuary Seekers In-Person Event

Macc are holding a Refugee Week event for the VCSE sector & statutory colleagues in Greater Manchester. Come along to learn more about recent policy developments in the asylum and migration sector and to celebrate the great work happening in our communities to support asylum seekers and refugees.  

We will have speakers from:

- Manchester City Council talking about Manchester’s journey to becoming a LA of Sanctuary, and how the VCSE sector can be involved in this process 

- Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit and Boaz Trust talking about their recent report on how immigration control forces people in Greater Manchester into destitution

- These Walls Must Fall, Refugees @ Home, and Growing Together talking about some of the amazing work done by VCSE organisations happening in GM

There will also be opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and organisations to explore ways of working together to support those in the asylum and migration system. 

Plant-based lunch and refreshments will be provided!
