Campaigns & awareness raising

At the Boaz Trust we seek to raise awareness about the destitution of asylum seekers and refugees, through visiting different organisations, community groups and schools. We share about our work and issues, and welcome the chance to give people some insight to the UK asylum system and the challenges our clients face.

If you’d like to find out more about whether we could come and speak to your group, please drop us an email to engage@boaztrust.org.uk We’ll get back in touch with you to find out more information about the group, and what kind of input you’d like from us. Sadly, we can’t always say yes to every invitation, perhaps due to timing or location, but we’ll do our best!

We believe the only way that destitution will end is if we see changes in national and international asylum and immigration policies. We use our experience and work with our clients to contribute to consultations and research, to speak out against the injustice of destitution.

We can’t do this alone so we work with other partners to speak out with, and on behalf of, asylum seekers and refugees. There are some great campaigning organisations including:

City of Sanctuary

Detention Action

WAST Manchester (Women Asylum Seekers Together)

Refugee Council

Women for Refugee Women

STAR (Student Action for Refugees)

Asylum Aid

Right to Remain

Refugee Action

Asylum Matters
