Hat·tê·ḇāh Liverpool: Young Refugee Awareness-Raising Training
Fri 24 March 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 GMT
Do you come into contact with young refugees in your day-to-day work? Have you wondered how best to support young refugees in your practice or church? If so, this training is for you.
The Children’s Society, Mothers’ Union, Home for Good and the Diocese of Liverpool are teaming up to deliver free awareness-raising training about young refugees and migrants in the Diocese.
As Christians, we have a responsibility to ensure that our communities are places where inclusivity is practised, respect is paramount and welcome extended without compromise. The Hebrew phrase hat·tê·ḇāh is used in two contexts in the Old Testament, once to describe Noah’s ark, and once for the basket used by Miriam to keep Moses safe in the River Nile. Our vision is for our communities to be places of safety, places of hat·tê·ḇāh, for refugee and migrant children.
The training is aimed at professionals in church communities who may come across refugees in their work or who might be influencers of others. This will include both church professionals, e.g. clergy, family or youth workers, chaplains and pastoral assistants, and professionals within church communities, e.g. teachers, lawyers and medical professionals. Please share and forward this email with anyone you believe may be interested and relevant.
On the day we will cover topics such as,
The immigration and asylum process, including issues and barriers – through the eyes of an unaccompanied asylum seeking child
Rights and entitlements
How professionals can be more sensitive and aware in their work
