Asylum Matters and Freedom From Torture are hosting a webinar on Monday 31st January, 2-4pm, for people with lived experience of asylum accommodation who want to take action to stop the development of ‘accommodation centres’ to house people in the asylum system.
As Asylum Matters' recent report, 'In a place like prison' has documented, we do not believe these will be suitable places for people seeking asylum to start to rebuild their lives; and we intend to campaign in 2022 to stop plans from developing any further. In order to succeed we want to work in partnership with people who have experience of the UK's asylum system, in particular people who have stayed in 'institutional' accommodation, such as hotels or military barracks.
If this is you, or someone you know, we'd like to invite you to a webinar hosted on zoom to brainstorm how we can work together to challenge the Government and ensure that people who come to the UK in the future will have a safe and welcoming home.
