“Where have we come from? Where are we now? Where are we going?”
On the 6th November, we were joined by friends, supporters and organisations for our AGM and Open Forum. During the meeting we launched our Annual Report and said thank you and goodbye to Executive Members Sally Browning, Neriman Kakabra and Chris Howson and welcomed Eithne Dodwell and Rosemary Nash.
Our Open Forum involved discussions about several issues which are currently affecting those seeking sanctuary in Bradford, including housing and destitution, social issues and the impact of law and policy. We are currently reading through the ideas which came about as a result of this. one of the overriding notions that arose from all discussion groups was the need for us to push forwards for a more human asylum process and to demand the protection of the human rights of those we work with. This is something for us all to get involved in and work towards, we will provide updates and a plan of action for moving forwards from these ideas SOON.
Thank you to all those who joined us on the night and participated in our discussions.
