London: information afternoon for refugees
Comment Email Print
¬†The Brentwood Refugee Development Project, Jesuit Refugee Service and the Shpresa Programme, which works with the Albanian community, have jointly organised an afternoon of information for refugees and their friends in Manor Park, London E12. The afternoon will include a session on the new Legal Aid rules, with Pierre Makhluf of the Hackney Law Centre; and Allison Bennett from the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns will be offering advice on how to run an anti-deportation campaign. Louise Zanrť from Jesuit Refugee Services says she hopes this will be a valuable opportunity for people who work with refugees and their families, as well as refugees themselves: "There is so much bureaucracy and confusion surrounding the asylum process. It is a confusing subject for British people and for the asylum seekers and refugees themselves, not least because the procedures change frequently. We hope to address two critical concerns for asylum seekers and for people working with asylum seekers - access to and how to recognise good legal advice and what to do if a case for asylum is unsuccessful and a local community want to stop the individual or family's removal from the UK." The afternoon will be held at St Nicholas Hall in Gladding Road, E12, between 3pm and 6pm on Saturday, 16 October.
