About this event

You are invited to join a discussion on the difficult conditions that people seeking asylum have to endure with regard to housing.

Housing is a basic necessity for any human being. Our speakers’ panel will consist of people living the experience of the UK asylum system, and who have written about the poor housing conditions they have endured. Together, they have much to tell us about what needs to be done to resist this denial of human rights.

This will be a learning opportunity as we hear the stories of people who are fighting against the inhumanity of the UK asylum regime.

We hope you will join us for this vital meeting!

Participating in the speakers’ panel will be representatives of South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group (SYMAAG) who have been leading the fight for decent housing for asylum seekers in Sheffield. From Manchester we will be hearing from Refugee & Asylum Participatory Action Research(RAPAR), and also Refugee Women Connect(RWC) who are campaiging in Liverpool.
