CARDIFF: workshop on mutual aid, self-help and seeking the right to remain



The policies and procedures of the UK’s asylum and immigration system are increasingly complicated, with many people forced to navigate them alone, unable to access free legal advice and representation.  These procedures can exclude people from accessing justice, and can mean that people are denied their rights, denied protection and/or security in the UK, and face forcible return.  It’s more important than ever that we work together and give support and solidarity to people seeking the right to remain in the UK.

This workshop will:

  • give an overview of the asylum and immigration process,
  • explore the barriers that people face in pursuing their legal case and securing the right to remain,
  • provide examples of self-help and mutual aid approaches to overcoming these barriers and taking action for the right to remain.

Self-help doesn’t mean doing it on your own. It means finding the right people to assist you to overcome a problem.  Mutual aid means working collaboratively and with equality together, sharing the work, the results, the benefits.  By giving help to benefit someone else, it can also benefit you.  This means that although you may be navigating the asylum/immigration yourself, you may also be able to help others who are going through it.

By working together, we can all become stronger, more able to deal with the hardships of life, the hardships of the asylum and immigration system.

Please note this workshop will be looking at how people can work together to overcome the barriers to the right to remain. We will not be able to give advice on individual cases.

Come and find out more at our workshop in Cardiff on Monday 14th March!

The workshop is from 10am to 1pm.

Places are limited, and will be offered on a first-come first-serve basis.
