Winter Night Shelters, Refugees and Migrants

  • London Diocesan House 36 Causton Street SW1P 4AU (map)

A gathering for all parishes and churches across London who are involved in hosting and volunteering at a Winter Night Shelters or Homeless Drop-in’s. As we head towards spring, but what better time is there to prepare ourselves?

On the evening we’ll have key input from:

Bethan Lant Project Lead at Praxis will be providing input on supporting refugees, asylum seekers and those with no recourse migrants

Jean Demars from The Public Interest Law Centre will be speaking on supporting European Migrants

Angela Afzal of Capital Mass will be exploring how parishes can support guests trapped in or being drawn into Modern Slavery

As the UK has implemented a hostile environment policy and as we journey towards and possibly through Brexit. The landscape for many is ever more complex meaning that parishes on the front line, need to be as informed as they can be in order to know how to support and respond.

Please do promote this event far and wide as together we support every guest from every nation.
