We presented at Manchester University's HCRI Career Day on 13 February on working in advocacy, research, and policy. We shared with the students some of the strands entailed in our line of work and offered them recommendations for their future career paths. There were other presenters on our panel from DFID and Save the Children.
We took part in an information morning at the University of Cumbria organised by Carlisle Refugee Action Group and Carlisle One World Centre on the 11th of February, to help prepare for the arrival of refugees in Cumbria. We informed the audience about the situation in Syria and major issues about the refugee crisis.
We attended an event on 10 February sponsored by Afzal Khan MEP in the Longsight & district sports & social club. This event was dedicated to listening to people's concerns on the Brexit process to feed this back into the Labour Party. We raised the profile of Syrian refugees and the impact that Brexit will have on them.
We gave a talk about Syria on 9th February 2017 to a community group in Warrington, along with local charity, CARE UK. We spoke about what is happening in Syria and addressed many misconceptions. The talk was well received with many expressing their support for the people of Syria. Thank you for hosting us.
