This section includes a selection of newsletters from organisations active in migration issues in the West Midlands accompanied by an excerpt of their mission statements.
Asylum Aid is an independent, national charity working to secure protection for people seeking refuge in the UK from persecution and human rights abuses abroad. We provide free legal advice and representation to the most vulnerable and excluded asylum seekers, and lobby and campaign for an asylum system based on inviolable human rights principles.
City of Sanctuary is a movement to build a culture of hospitality for people seeking sanctuary in the UK. Our goal is to create a network of towns and cities throughout the country which are proud to be places of safety for people seeking sanctuary and helping them integrate into their local communities.
Our work brings together migrant activists and support organizations, think tanks, academics, faith groups and public sector representatives to advocate for a rights-based approach towards migration in the UK.
CCLC is a national charity committed to promoting children’s rights in the UK and worldwide. We work to ensure that children’s interests are represented at every level of the legal process and in the production of legislation.
