Right to Remain: navigating the UK asylum system as a volunteer case worker.
This training session, delivered by Lisa Matthew, is based on Right to Remain’s Toolkit – and is interactive and participatory and suitable for people with all levels of knowledge/experience.
It looks at the major stages of the UK asylum process, the barriers people face through the legal process, and suggests actions for practical solidarity with people seeking asylum.
