Each day we'll be highlighting the issues that asylum seekers are facing, campaigns we're involved in and celebrating the work Refugee Women Connect does to support refugee women!

Join us in our Christmas Countdown

1st December 

1 year is the minimum time asylum seekers need to wait before getting permission to work.

The right to work is so important! Asylum seekers & their dependents bring a wealth of valuable skills and experience and a desire to contribute to the country which is giving them safety. But instead of allowing asylum seekers to work, the government forces them into dependency on asylum support, which affects mental health, causes poverty and prevents integration into local communities.

This December, help us to continue supporting refugee women in the North West. Every donation, big or small, can make a huge difference to asylum seeking and refugee women in our community.
