An event for Merseyside organisations and groups who provide support, advice and solidarity to refugees and migrants.
Last month we had a great session in Liverpool where we covered how to use and share the Right to Remain Toolkit, and how to provide legal support without straying into legal advice. We also heard updates from apanel of local organisations. Read about last month’s session here.
Last time around, one of the most popular requests for topics to cover was healthcare, so we will be covering that in this session, with some special guests. There are many obstacles to accessing healthcare services, and confusion about the rules relating to a person’s immigration status. We wrote about this recently in our blog on Getting healthcare in the UK, and section in the Toolkit is in development.
Spaces at these sessions are limited, so if you’re interested, use the sign-up form below to register today. And please share this page with anyone you think may be interested in attending.
