Event description
Migration Yorkshire are happy to invite you a Yorkshire and Humber VCS Engagement Day.

About this Event

This event is aimed at voluntary and community organisations supporting migrants.

The event will review the progress since the last VCS Engagement Day in May 2019, and engage on a variety of issues including AAST and AIRE contracts, and the EU Settlement Scheme. A full agenda will be circulated closer to the event.

Registration will be from 9:30 am.

Lunch will be provided. If you have any dietary or access requirements please let us know when booking.

There will be a choice of workshop to attend in the afternoon. Please select one when booking your place.

Option 1: Using policy updates and data for funding and campaigning

We’ll be looking at what policy updates, briefings and data Migration Yorkshire have available, and how you can couple this with your own knowledge and stats for robust funding bids and campaigns. Dr Pip Tyler (Policy and Research Manager, Migration Yorkshire) and Vicky Ledwidge (Integration & Partnerships Officer) will be delivering this interactive session.

Option 2: The Brexit conversation

At the time of writing, we don’t know what is happening with Brexit – whether we’ll leave on 31st October, or with a deal or not. Nevertheless, we are talking about it! Azzizum Akhtar (Director, Rema), and Mary Brandon (Campaign Project Manager, Asylum Matters) will host this session.

Option 3: Looking after yourself and your team

Our friends from Solace will share tips and techniques about self-care, and how to look after your staff and volunteers – an important topic in these stressful times.

Before booking please read our privacy notice.

Booking will close on 31st October 2019. Please note that booking is essential as places are strictly limited and will be issued on a first come, first served basis.
