Public Speaking

Asylum seekers are often socially marginalised and have little opportunity to communicate with the wider community.  We offer training and support so that they can be empowered to tell their story and share their perspectives.

We organise public events where the audience can learn more about people’s experience and the issues. Recently we organised a series of ‘cafe conversations’ to offer an informal space for dialogue.

We also bring speakers to a wide variety of groups and institutions such as schools, universities, faith groups, community organisations and conferences.

These activities are part of the VOICE project which is funded by the Big Lottery from April 2015 until March 2019.
