We continue to partner with Citizens UK, supported by Near Neighbours and University of Greenwich, on our programme to strengthen leadership and inspire community action. This term we will be working on training more women in the community in community action and leadership skills based on all our learning so far.
We will continue to tell our stories as we work on our Temporary Accommodation campaign.
We are immensely proud to have co-produced a short film, Finding Strength: Our Stories of the UK Hostile Environment. Please watch it here.
We have been exploring issues that are affecting many more people and communities like ours, particularly around housing and the immigration system. Every meeting has culminated in agreeing on next actions for change with three powerful phrases at the centre - ‘nurture love’, ‘speak the truth’, and ‘seek justice and freedom’.
We are continuing to run these sessions online to create positive change in ourselves and our communities.
"How powerful and strong we feel to be able to look not only inside ourselves and our group but also outside: to the wider issues we care about and are effecting many more people like us."
