Wilson Ruth and Charles were detained today when they went to sign at the Home Office. They are now on their way to Yarlswood Detention Centre. Please sign the petition to make Amber Rudd look again at their case.
This workshop is for people at risk of immigration detention, and for people helping those at risk.
Anyone who has not been granted leave to remain in the UK, as a refugee or under any other immigration status, is at risk of being taken and held in an immigration detention centre. This can happen suddenly at any time, but there are certain times in the legal process when you are more at risk.
Being in this situation can be very stressful. Being detained can be very traumatic. But there are many things you can do to prepare in case this happens, to make it less likely to happen, to make it less traumatic if it does happen, and to get out and back home more quickly.
This workshop, based on the Right to Remain Toolkit, will help you to understand immigration detention, to prepare in case detention happens, to reduce the damage it causes, and will look at practical steps that you can take to help yourself or to help others.
Wednesday 24th January, 6.00-8.00pm
Venue: St Dunstans Church. Earle Road, Edge Hill. Liverpool L7 6HD
A Fundraiser for ALM with music, stories and food hosted by the West Kirby Methodist Church. A Fish and Chip Supper followed by Music from the ALM ‘Women Together’ Choir, the Borderline Band and others.
St Mary’s RC Church Hall, Church Street, Woolton, L25 5JR
Walk uphill from Woolton Village along Church Street. After several hundred yards on your right you will find 26 Church Street, next on the right is a building called the Simon Peter Centre. Opposite 26 is a narrow lane with yellow/gold signs saying Catholic Church St Mary’s Private Road no right of access. This will be marked by balloons. Some 70 yards up the lane is a small car park with St Mary’s Church in the right and the church hall on the left. There is plenty of other parking on Church Street.
If you miss this entrance you will reach, on the left, St Peter’s Church of England which fronts onto Church Street. Beyond that is a purple sign showing Bishop Martin. If you reach these you have gone too far.
This briefing document from Asylum Matters, outlines the changes due to come into force in November, to the way the NHS charges for its services.
What should be remembered is that everyone is entitled to care where it is ‘urgent and necessary’ such as A&E service, and in the event someone cannot pay, it can be pointed out that it will cost the trust more to try and recover costs from someone who has no income. However if you don’t understand the language or have no one to advocate for you, how will Asylum Seekers know to do this?
