The sessions will be ran by a team of our longstanding sanctuary seekers and volunteers and will provide an opportunity for newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers to gather information about services in Manchester, get some valuable ‘inside’ tips from our sanctuary seekers on life in the UK, make some new friends, have a hot drink and biscuit and engage in some fun welcoming activities. We will have french, urdu, farsi and arabic speakers at each session and a £4 bus fare will be provided. If you have any further questions about the sessions, please email us at [email protected]

“I don’t want to stay home alone”

“I want to meet new friends and improve my English”
