Working with Refugees and Asylum-Seekers

Monday 30 July


Other Training Event




Sheffield is home to almost 900 asylum-seekers and approximately 1200 refugees. We desire to develop work with these residents in ways that enhance and enrich their lives, helping them to feel welcomed and valued members of our community. In late 2017 we received a small GEM research grant to visit and work with the Migration Museum in London, to learn more about their work with asylum-seekers and refugees. The agenda will cover what we learned from the research trip; projects that we have undertaken since then (including both what has and hasn’t worked!); and an opportunity to think about how to begin engaging with asylum-seekers and refugees at your site.
