Preston’s College have been leading the way on a pioneering programme in collaboration with City of Sanctuary. Raise Your Voice aims to help sanctuary seekers in Preston to find ways to express themselves and make their stories heard.
Over 4 weeks the group met weekly for 4-5 hours at a time. The programme has been lead by Vivien Caparros at Preston’s College and Jeff Morgan, North West Co-Ordinator of City of Sanctuary UK and has been so successful that the group continues to meet on a monthly basis.
We were very proud to see the project highlighted in the national City of Sanctuary news. Read what participant Ghassan Mahadi had to say here:https://cityofsanctuary.org/2019/01/02/raise-your-voice-a-programme-for-people-seeking-sanctuary-at-preston-college/
