National Refugee

Women's Conference

14 February 2020 - Birmingham

At the third National Refugee Women’s Conference, this time in Birmingham, we came together for an inspiring programme of workshops, discussions and performances to build our energy and skills to create change. The conference was hosted by Women with Hope, WAST ManchesterCARAGRefugee Women ConnectWomen for Refugee Women and other grassroots groups.

We launched research that documents the experiences of over 100 destitute asylum-seeking women. This evidence shows that destitution is a deliberate policy designed to harm vulnerable women and prevent them from rebuilding their lives with dignity.
