Event Programme – Sanctuary in Parliament 2016


We are still relying  on supporters across our network and partners to write to their MP and urge them to respond to the Sanctuary in Parliament Briefing.

Find your MP here.

Our Briefing Paper for MPs provides a good guide to the issues we raised and the actions  we are seeking from MPs in response to these. It’s a useful aid before meeting your MP. Please email this to your MP, so they can follow the links.  Try to arrange a meeting with your MP and local asylum seekers and refugees to discuss it.

Contact us through [email protected] if you require further information.dsc_0045

Please share this event and the need for everyone to engage their MPs via your networks and social media. The hashtag is #SanctuaryinParliament.FINAL


With special thanks to Barrow Cadbury Trust for funding this event.
