New network for organisations working, or looking to work, with asylum seekers, migrants and refugees in Calderdale
Voluntary Action Calderdale have received funding from Community Foundation for Calderdale and Calderdale Council to develop and support a network of organisations working, or looking to work, with asylum seekers, migrants and refugees in Calderdale, with the aim of increasing and improving support to these individuals and families. This is as part of the VSI Alliance work.
It is our hope that by working together with organisations and groups offering support, we can promote the exchange of information, good practice, awareness of training opportunities, upskilling and dissemination of knowledge.
While we can offer some dedicated time to bringing the network together, it will only succeed if it serves a need for those committed to work with asylum seekers, migrants and refugees. For that to happen, those organisations need to engage and help shape the network.
We would therefore like to invite you to an initial meeting of the network, where we can all bring together our ideas for the future.
The meeting will be held at 1.00pm, Wednesday, 28th November at VAC Resource Centre, Hall St, Halifax, HX1 5AY
Please let us know if you can attend by emailing Anthony Clipsom, Project Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 07957246387.
