Forced displacement is at an all-time high. In 2015 65.3 million people were forcibly displaced during the year.

This Course is Free of Charge.

Join Swansea City of Sanctuary and its volunteers to discover what forced displacement really means, and how it feels to be a person seeking sanctuary in the UK. This training is co-delivered by the Sanctuary Speakers team, all of whom are 'experts-by-experience' of the UK asylum system.

This training is intended to increase knowledge and understanding of issues affecting asylum seekers and refugees. You will be equipped with:

  • Definitions of different categories of migrant
  • An overview of the UK asylum system
  • Knowledge of where people seeking sanctuary flee from and where they flee to
  • The Welsh perspective, what happens here and how it differs from the rest of the UK
  • An overview of support systems in the UK 
  • Barriers faced by people seeking sanctuary
  • Knowledge of how you/ your organisation can help to support people seeking sanctuary in Wales
